Belgium's trademark law on Intellectual Property is primarily governed by the Benelux Convention. The Benelux countries consist of a single jurisdiction when it comes to trademark purposes. Therefore, it is possible to acquire trademark protection only within Belgium. Belgium has taken on a number of global conventions on trademarks. The trademarks include:
- The Paris Convention for Industrial Property Protection
- The 1967 Nice Convention on the global classification of services and goods for trademark registration
- The 1989 Protocol and 1891 Madrid Agreement for the global registration of trademarks, which are administered by the International Bureau of WIPO
It is crucial to keep in mind that it is also probable to register to the Community Trademark (CTM). A CTM system offers consistent trademark protection all through the whole Europe territory and has been administered by the Office for Harmonization within the Internal Market.
