Section 5 provides that an application for the registration of a mark shall be filed with the Registrar on the prescribed form and shall contain the following: (a) a request that the mark be registered; (b) a reproduction of the mark; and (c) a list of the goods or services for which registration of the mark is requested, listed under the applicable class or classes of the International Classification. The application shall be accompanied by the prescribed application fee. The application may contain a declaration claiming the priority, as provided for in the Paris Convention, of an earlier national or regional application filed by the applicant or his or her predecessor in title in or for any State party to the Convention or any member of the World Trade Organisation, in which case the Registrar may require that the applicant furnishes, within the prescribed time limit, a copy of the earlier application, certified as correct by the Office with which it was filed. The effect of the declaration shall be as provided in the Paris Convention. Where the requirements of subsection (3) of this section and any regulations pertaining to that subsection have not been satisfied, the declaration shall be considered not to have been made. The applicant may withdraw the application at any time before the mark is registered.
