    Filing Requirements

Australian Trade Mark Renewals

The first period of registration of an Australian Trade Mark is ten (10) years from the application filing date.  If the registration was based on a Divisional Application, the first period of registration stems from the date of filing of the original parent application.  The registration can then be renewed for further periods of ten (10) years.

Renewal applications should be made within the last twelve (12) months of the registration term.  If the renewal fee is not paid by the expiry date, application for late renewal can be made during the twelve (12) months after expiry, upon payment of additional fees.

No action for infringement can be taken in respect of acts done during the twelve month grace period between the expiry of the registration period and the renewal of a registration.
