Get a Trademark Renewal Certificate in Thailand within 45 Minutes!

Good news for all trademark owners in Thailand!!! From now on, you do not have to wait 6-12 months to receive a Trademark Renewal Certificate... It is possible to receive it within 45 minutes of a renewal application being filed.

And no – it may be April but this is not a joke or an April fools’ hoax at all!

On 1 March 2021, the Department of Intellectual Property (DIP) launched the Fast Track Program for straightforward renewals in order to enhance trademark renewal procedural efficiency and to facilitate maintenance for trademark rights’ owners in Thailand.

If the following fast track conditions are met, the DIP could complete and issue a trademark renewal certificate to you within 45 minutes of submitting the renewal application without incurring any additional official fee:

  1. The total number of the registered goods or services must not be more than 30 items.
  2. No amendments or changes can be made to the particulars of the registration (i.e., the registrant’s name or address, the trademark agent, and specifications of goods or services cannot be amended or changed).
  3. The renewal application must be manually submitted to the DIP by either the owner or an appointed agent. In the case of renewal filing by the appointed agent, the scope of the Power of Attorney must cover the power of agent to collect the renewal certificate on the registrant’s behalf.
  4. Fast track examination must be requested at the time of filing the renewal application.

Although this Fast Track Program may not seem like a major development, we have to give a big round of applause to the DIP for firmly following their IP Roadmap and for trying to ease the journey of IP rights’ holders in every possible way. If there are any further initiatives from the DIP, we at KASS will be sure to keep you updated!
