How to manage your Registration: Renunciation

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

You may present form MM7 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 your mark will have no effect nor enjoy protection for the goods and services concerned in the designated Contracting Parties which are the subject of the renunciation. You may later request the recording of a subsequent designation (form MM4) 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 59.03 of the Guide to the International Registration of Marks under the Madrid Agreement and the Madrid Protocol and pages 39 to 41 of “Making the most of the Madrid System”.
