A European Union trade mark (EUTM) grants you exclusive rights in all current and future Member States of the European Union through a single registration, filed online. It is valid for 10 years and can be renewed indefinitely, 10 years at a time for each renewal. Before applying, do not forget to go through our checklist to ensure that your application proceeds smoothly.
