Return to Commerce Website IP Portal eServices

Welcome to the Commerce Department's IP portal. This platform provides a variety of tools related to the protection of trademarks and designs in Malta. Through this portal, the Commerce Department is making available databases where you may browse the local trade marks and design register. You may also apply for a trade mark through an easy-to-use wizard which guides users through the steps. Further tools will be added to the portal in the coming months.

The portal and tools have been developed with the support of the European Union Intellectual Property Office (European Union Trademark and Designs) under the Cooperation Fund programme.
