Is the trademark filing number the same as the trademark registration number?
In some countries the filing number is different from the registration number, however most countries are now moving towards having the filing number and registration number be the same. A trademark filing number is the unique identification number assigned to a trademark application when it is filed with the relevant government agency. It serves as an identifier for the application and is used to track its progress through the registration process. On the other hand, a trademark registration number is assigned to a trademark that has been successfully registered with the government agency. It serves as an identifier for the registered trademark and is used to track its use and enforce its protection. In summary, the trademark filing number is assigned to an application, while the trademark registration number is assigned to a registered trademark.
