Madrid System: Managing International Trademark Registrations – Renew your Registration

You can renew your international trademark registration every ten years directly with WIPO using "Renew your Registration" under eMadrid. Shortly before renewal is due, we will send you an unofficial notice, confirming the date of expiry of your international registration.

When should you renew your international trademark registration?

You can renew your international trademark registration at the earliest three months before the ten-year term of protection expires, or within the six-month grace period following its expiry. Important! Surcharges apply if you renew during the grace period.

What happens next?

We will check your renewal (formalities only) and notify you of any problems, including failure to pay the required fees. If the renewal request meets all requirements, we will record it in the International Register and send you a Certificate of Renewal. Sample Certificate of Renewal PDF, Sample Certificate of Renewal
