There are multiple options for monitoring a trademark.

You can monitor trademarks by regularly checking databases and scanning similar filings. Since trademark databases are public, anyone can do this.

If you are looking for more elaborate and in-depth results, you can also prepay a trademark monitoring service provided by a 3rd party. You can usually set search parameters - classes of goods and services, jurisdictions, the level of similarity to consider, etc. You will then receive reports of similar or identical trademarks filed in the jurisdiction(s) of your choice. This will allow you to file an opposition against these applications in time.
