You can wait until your trademark is fully approved by the IPO to start with trademark monitoring; however, the best practice is to start even earlier - after your trademark application has been filed.

This is because you gain certain rights already after filing, and you can exercise them, for example, by opposing similar trademark applications filed after yours. And, of course, you'd learn about them via trademark monitoring.
