The Madrid System is a one stop solution for registering and managing marks worldwide. File one application, in one language, and pay one set of fees to protect your mark in the territories of up to 96 members. Manage your portfolio of marks through one centralized system.
Before filing an international application, you can search WIPO and IP Office databases to find out if there are identical or similar marks already in Contracting Parties of interest. Find out how to search the Global Brand Database, as well as how to locate IP Office databases.
Filing an international application requires that you have already registered or applied for a mark in your "home" IP Office. Find out more about the process, including forms, fees, designating Contracting Parties and determining a list of goods and services.
Once your mark is registered, you can easily manage your rights through a single request. Find out how to renew an international registration, extend the geographical scope of protection, transfer ownership or appoint a representative.
