Hong Kong Trademark Registration Application,What happens to an application for registration of a trademark after it is filed with the Registry? There are four stages in the process of examining an application for registration: deficiency checking, examination against the requirements of the Trade Marks Ordinance and Trade Marks Rules, acceptance of application and publication for opposition, registration and issue of certificate of registration.
