Electronic Renewal of International Trademark Registrations

Starting April 3, 2006, an electronic interface for the renewal of international registrations on-line (“e-renewal”) will be available at

Iinternational registrations are renewable up to six months before the date on which the payment of the renewal fee is due. Users will only need to enter the number of the international registration to be renewed. A screen will then show the name of the holder of that international registration, the name of the representative, if any, and the list of the Contracting Parties for which the international registration can be renewed. After having selected from that list the Contracting Parties for which renewal is sought, the amount of fees to be paid will automatically appear on the screen.

More services related to the Madrid System for the International Registration of Marks are available from the WIPO here.
