According to law, the term of protection of a trademark registration certificate is 10 years from the date of submitting a trademark registration application. In order to be granted the extension of the validity of a trademark registration certificate, within 06 months prior to the date of expiration of the certificate, the owner shall submit a request for extension to the Intellectual Property office.
Late renewal means the failure of the trademark owner in extending the protection on time as prescribed. The law allows a period of 06 months from the date of expiration of the certificate of trademark registration for the owner to renew and pay fines for late extension months. If the above time limit for late extension is past over, the owner still fails to proceed with the renewal procedures, the validity of the trademark registration certificate shall be terminated. Therefore, it is extremely important to renew the trademark on time in order to avoid the cancellation of the protection title.
