Impact of Brexit Agreement on Users of Madrid and Hague System


The Agreement on the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom (UK) from the European Union (EU) provides for a transition period starting on February 1, 2020, the date on which the UK will leave the EU and ending on December 31, 2020.

International registrations under the Madrid System for the International Registration of Marks designating the European Union, including those designations made during the above-mentioned transition period, will continue to have effect in the United Kingdom during this period.

Nationals of the United Kingdom and those who are domiciled or have a real and effective industrial or commercial establishment in the United Kingdom and in whose name stands an application or registration with the Office of the European Union, may continue to file international applications with this Office, as Office of origin, during the transition period.

Furthermore, international registrations under the Hague System designating the European Union, including such international registrations made during the above-mentioned transition period, will continue to have effect in the United Kingdom during this period.

For further information on Madrid System, please check Information Notice No. 2/2020 and on Hague System Information Notice No. 2/2020
