How to Manage your International Registration: Overview

Once your mark has been recorded in the International Register, the Madrid System makes it possible for you to manage your international registration via a single centralized system.

For instance, a single submission is sufficient to (totally or partially) transfer or renew your international registration in multiple countries/regions, or to appoint a (new) representative before WIPO. You can also record changes to the holder’s name and address, request a change in ownership, or restrict the scope of your international registration.

For additional information on potential changes to your international registration, refer to the list of Madrid System forms, Notes for filing MM forms PDF, Notes for filing forms and the Guide to the International Registration of Marks under the Madrid Agreement and Protocol.
