Renewal of Registration on Agent Register


The Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) informs that patent and trademark agents have until April 3, 2018, to renew their registration on the register of patent agents and the list of trademark agents.

These lists are renewed on an annual basis as set out in subsection 16(1) of the Patent Rules and section 22 of the Trade-marks Regulations respectively.

Since the end of the renewal period, March 31, falls on a Saturday in 2018, the deadline is extended to the next day the Office is open - Tuesday, April 3.

Agents who fail to meet the renewal requirements before April 3, 2018, will be removed from the register of patent agents or from the list of trademark agents. In such cases, agents will need to pay the reinstatement and renewal fee. Further, trademark agents will also need to demonstrate that they have passed the qualifying examination.
