TRIPOLI – This is to inform you that the trademarks Registrar confirmed that it would be possible to lodge renewal applications in respect of expired trademarks, regardless to their expiry date, until 31 December 2015. After said date, all expired (lapsed) trademarks will be treated as cancelled.

As we mentioned in our newsletter article in October 2015 regarding this matter, it is possible to issue registration certificates for expired applications after paying the normal renewal fee as well as paying the registration fee simultaneously.

To submit renewal applications or obtaining registration certificates, applicants are required to provide specimen of the mark, filing number, filing date, applicant details, class, and list of goods. No other documents are needed.
