How to manage your international registration: Renewal

Once your mark has been recorded in the International Register, the international registration is valid for ten years and can be renewed every ten years directly with WIPO (upon payment of the required renewal fees).

You will receive an unofficial notice from WIPO confirming the date of expiry of your international registration.
