How to manage your Registration: Limitation

To restrict the list of goods and services in respect of some or all of the designated Contracting Parties in your international registration, use form MM6.

You may present form MM6 directly to WIPO or through your Office, i.e., the Office of the Contracting Party of the holder.

The goods and services will remain in the main list of the international registration, but those affected by the limitation will no longer have any effect in the designated Contracting Party concerned. You may later request the recording of a subsequent designation (E-Subsequent Designation or paper form MM4) for the goods and services which are the subject of the limitation.

To permanently remove the goods and services from the International Register, use form MM8.

For further information on limitations, please refer to paragraphs B.II.52.01 to 59.03 of the Guide to the International Registration of Marks under the Madrid Agreement and the Madrid Protocol and pages 34 to 38 of “Making the most of the Madrid System”.
