Within the last year of protection (10th year), the owner of a registered trademark may submit a request to extend the trademark’s period of protection.

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.

Application Process

Follow these steps to extend a registered trademark’s protection period:

  • Fill out the application form.
  • Submit the application to the Ministry of Commerce and Industry’s Industrial Property Rights Section.
  •  Pay appropriate fees.

Additional Information
