The OAPI states are a union of French-speaking African countries. Occasionally, OAPI is mentioned as AIPO (African Intellectual Property Organization), not to be confused with ARIPO.

Member states are Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, the Central African Republic, Chad, Comoro Islands, Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Ivory Coast, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Senegal, and Togo.

The above-listed countries are treated as one jurisdiction in trademark law. Besides, there is no separate trademark law in the member states. Consequently, it is not possible to obtain national registrations in these countries.
OAPI becomes a member of the Madrid Protocol on 5 March 2015.

The Trademark Office applies the current version of the Nice Classification, you can find acceptable goods and services in this link.

OAPI Trademark registration: Requirements

Fill out our simple online form in just 5 minutes and a Trademark Specialist will contact you within 24 hours in order to guide you through the process. Note, that if your trademark is applied both for goods (classes from 1 to 34) and services (classes from 35 to 45) it will have to be filed in 2 separate applications. At th e same time, one application in OAPI may contain more than one class of products or services respectively.

What is registrable as a trademark?

Registrable as a trademark is any visible sign capable of distinguishing the goods and services of any enterprise. The following trademark types are registrable: trademarks, service marks and collective marks.

What will be required to file your brand in OAPI?

  • Type of the applicant: individual or a company.
  • Complete name of the owner. Full address of the owner.
  • Phone number - to contact you in case if any action is required.
  • Mailing address - to forward you the certificate once the trademark is registered.
  • List of goods/services.
  • Class or classes.
  • Trademark itself.
  • Power of attorney (non-legalised).

OAPI Trademark registration: Procedure

The application process includes only a formal examination, without indication of potential identical or similar trademarks. The opposition period is 6 months from the publication date of the trademark in the Official Gazette.
After registration, the trademark is published in the official Trademark Bulletin.
The entire trademark registration process takes 9-12 months.

A trademark registration is valid for 10 years starting from the filing date. The registration is renewable for periods of 10 years. If the trademark has not been in use within 5 years from registration, it may be subject to cancellation at the appeal of any interested party. Use in one member state is sufficient to satisfy the use requirement for all member countries.
