A trademark has to be renewed every ten years. In the event the deadline has lapsed, the renewal can be effected within 6 months after the deadline by paying an additional fee of 20%.

What you have to provide

Basicly the information we need to renew a trade mark is the same as for the first application. If you do not have this information any longer (change of ownerships, etc.) we can ask for an offical copy of the register in order to retrieve the complete set of information needed.

In the event the trademark was assigned to a new owner and the assignement has not been registered yet, we first have to record the complete chain of assignements, name changes, changes of legal form etc. before we are allowed to renew the trademark for the acutal owner.

Please provide us with the following information for renewing your trademark registration in Monaco:

  • The name and address of the applicant
  • The applicant's communication information (telephone number and e-mail address)
  • In the event of a verbal trademark the name of the trademark
  • In the event of a figurative trademark a graphical depiction (maximum size 9cm times 9cm)
  • In the event your trademark is in colour you may opt to give a verbal description of the colours
  • In the event of requesting priority a priority document (can be handed in later)
  • A Power of Attorney in our favour

Please note:

  • The power of attorney hás to be signed by the applicant. In the event the applicant is a company, an authorised representative has to sign on behalf of the company.
  • Please note that the Monegasque Law requires that the signer puts above or left to his signature in his own handwriting either the words “bon pour pouvoir” or “good for proxy”.
  • Manaco Law does not require legalization nor notarization of the power of attorney.
  • The correctly signed power of attorney has to be send as an original either by mail or courrier. No fax or pdf will be accepted.
