Yes, you can, but you must make sure that your trade marks do not infringe somebody else’s rights. Remember that your registration is valid only on the territory of South Africa. You are strongly advised to use an attorney to conduct a trade mark search for you in the country you are exporting to, or depending on the circumstances, apply for a trade mark registration in that country.
