About Us

We combine trademark services and guidance in regulatory compliance, based on the following observations:

East/South-East Asia
Our East/South-East Asian region is emerging and gradually becoming the largest free trade area in the world. A major share of world production and consumers are located in this region. Product safety and quality have become a major concern to legislators and consumers.

Product safety a major concern
We have observed the decline of economic safeguards parallel to fast-rising regulatory barriers. Safeguards relate to objective economic measures, while regulatory legislation relates to subjective health, safety, and welfare measures. Whether or not there is any relation between these two systems, both are applied by governments to protect their domestic markets and industries.

Increase of regulatory barriers
Safeguards lead to economic conflicts between governments. The protection of health, welfare, and safety of people, however, is in their common interest. This is why we predict a harmonized raise of regulatory barriers in the entire region; moreover, cooperation between regulatory authorities in other parts of the world.

Regulatory goes beyond trademark law
While safeguards have little relevance for trademarks, increasing regulatory barriers raise the question of compliance of trademarks in addition to and beyond trademark laws. Therefore, registering a trademark without foresight of regulatory compliance leads--and will lead more and more often--to brand-damaging product recalls ordered by local regulatory authorities.
