All trademark records in TMCH are subject to annual reverification. The Trademark Agent or Holder will receive 2 e-mail notifications: one 60 days and one 30 days before the mark expiration date, and one 10 days after the mark expiration date. This is independent of whether the registrations were performed through the web or the automated interface.
Upon renewal, Trademark Agents or Holders will be able to change the duration of the consecutive registration period for trademark records.
Upon submission of the trademark records to be renewed, the Trademark Holder’s or Trademark Agent’s Prepaid Account is checked to see if sufficient funds are available to renew the selected trademark records. In case no sufficient funds are available to renew all selected trademark records, trademark records are renewed serially until the Prepaid Account no longer has sufficient funds to renew the next trademark records. If this is the case, the Trademark Agent or Holder is advised to increase its Prepaid Account.
