Under the Madrid System, renewal of international registrations is due ten years from the registration date. This is the date recorded by the International Bureau. The International Bureau notifies you, as the trade mark holder, or your representative (such as your lawyer) six months before the expiry date. All designated countries on an international registration will have the same date of renewal. This is the date of the first instance of filing. The renewal date will not change for subsequently designated countries.

Procedure for Renewal
Six months before the expiry of each five-year term, the International Bureau sends to the holder and the representative, if any, a notice indicating the date of expiry of the international registration, along with the maximum term of protection which has been notified to the Director General of WIPO by the Contracting Parties concerned. If however the holder (or representative) does not receive such unofficial notice, this does not constitute an excuse for failure to comply with any time limit for payment of the renewal fees due.

No official form is prescribed for the renewal of an international registration. Renewal may be effected by any communication giving the required indications (number(s) of the international registration(s) concerned and purpose of the payment). Holders may however find it convenient to use the unofficial form DM/4 which provides for the necessary information, namely:

1. the number of the international registration to be renewed;
2. the name and address of the holder (which must be the same as the name and address  recorded in the International Register);
3. the international registration is to be renewed for all the designs and for all the designated Contracting Parties - including, where applicable, those Contracting Parties in respect of which a total refusal has been recorded in the International Register and those Contracting Parties designated under the 1999 Act or the 1960 Act in respect of which the maximum period of protection has expired - or the indication of the designated Contracting Parties and/or industrial designs for which the international registration is not to be renewed. Where applicable, those Contracting Parties in respect of which a total refusal has been recorded in the International Register and those Contracting Parties designated under the 1999 Act or the 1960 Act in respect of which the maximum period of protection has expired;
4. the signature of the holder or his representative;
5. the fees being paid and the method of payment, or instructions to debit the required fees from an account with the International Bureau.
