New Rules concerning the reduced renewal fees of Community Trademarks (European Union Trademarks as from March 23, 2016)


Introduction of the new rules

  • The latest published communication of the President of the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (European Union Intellectual Property Office as from March 23, 2016) has established the rules concerning the new renewal fees of Community Trademarks.
  • The reduced renewal fees apply to all Community Trademarks expiring on or after March 23, 2016.
  • The hitherto standing renewal fees are still to be settled for trademarks expiring before March 23, 2016.
  • Weickmann & Weickmann will certainly take these new rules into account when effecting the renewals of Community Trademarks.
