Madrid System: Certified Documents from the International Register
Do you need to prove the scope of protection of your international registration for court proceedings? Are you experiencing issues with your mark at customs? Did you lose your certificate of international registration? We can email you digital copies of certified documents, stamped with our official WIPO seal.
Tip! You can find up-to-date information on international registrations in Madrid Monitor.
Attestations are mainly used for Customs purposes. They can also prove a change in ownership or a pending request for an upcoming renewal, etc.
Attestations highlight only one piece of information, making it quick and easy for the end user to find the information they need.
Cost: 77 CHF | Sample of an attestation
Copies of certificates
Only holders and official representatives can request certified copies of original registration or renewal certificates. Warning: Any changes made (example: change of address) since WIPO issued the original certificate, will not be reflected in the copy.
Cost: 50 CHF | Sample of a copy of a renewal certificate
Note: Certified copies are only available for certificates issued since January 1, 2006.
Detailed certified extracts
A detailed certified extract consists of a full analysis of the history of the mark. This kind of document is ideal for international court proceedings. It can also serve as evidence of the acquisition of the mark, for certifying a license, for tracking a change in ownership, etc. This kind of extract is the most comprehensive yet concise document you can order.
You can order a detailed extract in English, French or Spanish. Cover pages are available in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian or Spanish.
Cost: 155 CHF for up to three pages; 10 CHF for each additional page | Sample of a detailed extract
Contrary to their name, simple extracts are far more comprehensive than detailed extracts as they include all notifications sent by national/regional IP Offices. These notifications can be very technical.
Tip! If you order a detailed extract, we perform the analysis of the mark for you, presenting the information in a clear manner.
Anyone can request a simple extract.
Cost: 77 CHF for up to three pages; 2 CHF for each additional page | Sample of a simple extract
Warning! Simple extracts can sometimes have over 500 pages.
Legalization of documents
We can arrange legalization of extracts from the International Register. Legalization can take up to 10 days. Note: It may not be possible to legalize extracts for some countries. Legalized documents are issued in paper format only.
Important! Extracts for use within Madrid System Members do not need to be legalized.
How does it work?
We certify, sign and seal the requested document and send it to the Geneva State Chancellery for authentication;
the authenticated document is sent to the consulate/embassy of the relative country for legalization.
