Brexit: Draft Agreement on withdrawal of UK from EU signals continuity of IP rights

26 März 2018

A transition period, which ends on 31 December 2020, was recently agreed for the UK to implement its exit from the EU. Registered EU trade marks (EUTMs) and designs (RCDs) will continue to give protection in the UK during the transition period.

The EU Commission and UK government have agreed that EUTMs and RCDs which are already registered before the transition period ends should then be replicated on the UKIPO register as national rights, keeping the same filing, priority and renewal dates. There will be no re-examination. It has not yet been agreed whether this process will be free of charge.

See link for text of the Draft Agreement – only green text has been agreed at negotiators’ level.
