EU trademark application process
  a. Formal examination    According to whether the application materials are complete, whether to claim priority and whether the trademark could be used as a representative symbol to examination.If there is a need to make corrections, an official notice will be issued to notify the applicant to make corrections,Overdue EUIPO will refuse to accept the case.Subsequently, EUIPO will send the application materials to the EU Translation Center for translation for subsequent disclosure and retrieval procedures (official languages: English, French, German, Spanish or Italian).
