Renewing a Trademark

The registration of a national trademark is valid for an initial period of ten (10) years from the application's submission date, which can be renewed indefinitely for further consecutive periods of ten (10) years.

The beneficiary must renew the national trademark within six (6) months before the expiry of the previous protection period. It is noted that renewal, within six (6) months of the expiry of the previous protection period, is allowed by paying an additional renewal fee of fifty percent (50%) of the renewal fee.

In case of non-renewal within the aforementioned period, the Intellectual and Industrial Property Section proceeds to the strike-off of the national trademark.

  • seventy three euro (€73) in case of electronic filing or seventy five euro (€75) in case of submission by hand/post; and
