Following feedback from customers, in April 2016, the UK IPO launched an email trial to file international trade mark applications, with the help of some UK attorneys.
We are pleased to confirm the trial has been a success and will be made available to all users from the 26 September 2016. This is an interim measure, whilst work is ongoing, to introduce an e-filing system for international trade mark applications.
International trade mark applications can now be emailed to the UKIPO using the following email address:
- we would encourage you to use the UKIPO version of the MM2
- the MM17/MM18 will be accepted if filed with the MM2
- no other forms or correspondence should be emailed to this address
An updated version of the UKIPO’s form MM2: Application to register an International trade mark is available.
