When do I have to renew my Community Trademark?
We will generally inform you six months before expiry that your Community Trademark is due for renewal, if you want us to. Otherwise you have to take care, that you observe the time limit for renewal yourself. The renewal fee must be paid within the six months preceding your CTM’s expiry date. The form may be submitted right up until the last day of the month in which the protection ends.
If you have failed pay the renewal fee within this time limit but still wish to renew your mark, you can still do so for six months after the expiry date. Howver, there will be a 25% surcharge.
