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 an international registration, use form MM6.

With a limitation, the goods and services will remain in the main list of the international registration, but the ones affected by the limitation will no longer have any effect in the designated Contracting Party concerned. The recording of a subsequent designation (MM4) may later be requested for the goods and services which are the subject of the limitation.

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.
