How to manage your Registration: Cancellation

To remove some or all of the goods and services in respect of all the designated Contracting Parties in an international registration, use form MM8.

Note that, unlike with limitations (MM6), a cancellation causes the goods and services to be permanently removed from the International Register. To obtain protection for goods and services that were the subject of a cancellation, a new international application would have to be filed, since subsequent designation is not possible following a cancellation.

For further information on cancellations, please refer to paragraphs B.II.52.01 to 58.02 of the Guide to the International Registration of Marks under the Madrid Agreement and the Madrid Protocol.
