Generally, the best time to start monitoring your trademark is after filing your application. This is because your trademark's validity starts from the filing date, not the registration date, and while your mark is still undergoing assessment, you are already entitled to a certain level of protection. This protection allows you to oppose similar applications filed after yours; therefore, it's a good idea to know about them thanks to trademark monitoring.
