How to manage your Registration: Renunciation

To abandon the effects of an international registration for all the goods and services in respect of some (but not all) of the designated Contracting Parties, use form MM7.

With renunciation, the goods and services will remain in the main list of the international registration, but the mark will have no effect or enjoy no protection for the goods and services concerned in the designated Contracting Parties which are the subject of the renunciation. The recording of a subsequent designation (MM4) may later be requested for the designated Contracting Parties which are the subject of the renunciation.

For further information on renunciations, 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.
