Misleading requests for payment

Users are receiving an increasing amount of unsolicited mail from companies requesting payment for trade mark and design services such as publication, registration or entries in business directories.

EUIPO never sends users invoices or letters requesting direct payment for services.

We recommend that you choose the User Area as your communication method with the Office. We will then send all communications directly to your User Area inbox, and you can be sure that they are official.


Once your trade mark application has been formally accepted, it will be published in our online register and trade mark details will be publicly available. You may consider checking the availability of a .eu domain name with EURid at*.
