Trademark registration with the Benelux Office for Intellectual Property (BOIP) allow for an automatic protection across Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg, with only one application.
BOIP is located in The Hague, Netherlands and was established with the Benelux Convention on Intellectual Property (2005) with the purpose of promoting the protection of trademarks and designs in the Benelux countries. In fact, protection of trademarks and designs is only possible through BOIP as there are no national laws in Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg.
BOIP does not allow for the deposit of patents which should be done through the European Patent Organization (Belgium and the Netherlands) or the national Intellectual Property Office (Luxembourg).
