Sutco® is now a registered EU trademark.
Another important step in the success story of Sutco RecyclingTechnik GmbH is the registration of the name Sutco® as a union brand.
In January, the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) granted the plant manufacturer the 10-year right to use the exclusive name in all current and future Member States of the European Union, a market with nearly 500 million potential customers.

The procedure in detail.
Upon receipt of the application to the EUIPO, the latter verifies, in a multi-step procedure, whether the trademark meets the legal framework for registration. In the absence of any complaints or restrictions of registration, the application for the trade mark application is made in all 23 EU official languages. This publication is followed by a three-month opposition period, while the third party can object to the trademark entry in an opposition proceedings. If no opposition is filed or if the trademark is the opposition proceedings, the actual registration of the trade mark and the publication of the registered trade mark are made to the general public at the end of the opposition period. The company receives its registration certificate.
