Trademark Renewals

Trademark Renewal Overview

  • Trademarks must be renewed every 5 years to remain active. The renewal fee is $50.
  • An Application for Renewal form is mailed to the Correspondent’s address about 60 days prior to the 5-year anniversary date. This form is not available on our website because it is specific to your trademark.
  • If you need a form sent to you, please contact our office.
Included with your renewal
  • The form includes very specific instructions.
  • Update the Correspondent’s name or mailing address if needed. Cross out the old and write in the new.
  • A sample of the existing trademark must be submitted with the renewal. Any change in the mark requires a new registration (also $50) instead of the renewal.
Renewal deadline
  • Renewals not received at the Corporation Division by the renewal date will go inactive and a new registration will be required. (There is no grace period.)
Changes to your Trademark Registration
  • Any change, no matter how minor, in the description or image of the trademark requires a new registration, valid for a new 5 year period.
  • To change the Assignor or Owner, submit the Trademark Assignment/Cancellation form ($50).
  • To change the Correspondent name or address, other than on the renewal form, there is no fee, and the Applicant address (only) can be changed the same way.
    • Write a signed letter (not an email) with the Registry Number and the new information.
