Trade Marks

Changes to international trademark registrations after 1 January 2021

International trademark registrations protected in the EU under the Madrid Protocol will no longer enjoy protection in the UK after 1 January 2021.

To address this, on 1 January 2021 UK Government will create a comparable trade mark (IR) in relation to each international (EU) trade mark designation which has protected status immediately before 1 January 2021. Find out more here.
