A Registrability Search (75 hit T&T Saegis report for USA trademarks or 160 hit NUANS TL report for Canada), is limited to a search of the Federal trademarks database. You may wish to order a more comprehensive search if you will be investing money in the trademark.
A Registrability Opinion, signed by a trademark agent, is important to have if you plan on investing money in signs and in advertising the trademark before you get the Trademarks Office’s search report (usually within 8 months of applying for USA applications and 1 to 2 years for Canadian applications.) When a Registrability Opinion is requested, a Registrability Search is required, so that there may be something on which to base the opinion.
