Trademark renewalAfter a trademark has been registered, the term and legal protection for it is valid for ten years. If the owner of a trademark certificate wishes to extend this term for an additional ten years then a request must be submitted within last year of validation.
The following documents and information are required for renewal:

Pay attention, the certificate can be terminated in case of non-payment of extension fee. But, according to Article 17 of Trademark Law ‘No one, except the former owner of the certificate, has right to registration this trademark again within one year after the expiry of the certificate in the event of non-payment of the extension fee’.
