Filing and registering a European Union trademark (EUTM) before the EUIPO (European Union Intellectual Property Office) gives you the fastest and the most cost-effective protection of a trademark throughout the European Union. The EUTM registration is valid in all 27 EU countries and may be obtained by filing a single application to the EUIPO.
