This service results in the owner receiving a certificate guaranteeing an extended protection period for another 10 years commencing at the date of expiry of the previous protection period.
Any trademark owner who does not submit a renewal application by the end of the 10th year is entitled to a grace period of six months following the trademark’s expiry. Additional fees are required for late submissions.
