Brexit and European Union Trade Marks (EUTMs)

EUTMs registered at the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) will no longer be valid in the UK when the country leaves the European Union. However, all registered EUTMs will be converted into comparable national UK trade marks by the UK Intellectual Property Office (IPO) without charge. Filing dates, priority and seniority dates of the original EUTMs will be retained.

For EUTM applications that are still pending when the UK exits the EU, on the other hand, applications for equivalent UK trade marks need to be filed and the national application fees paid within nine months if the right is to be upheld in the UK.
