How do I renew the Proof of Use documentation?

In case you, as a Trademark Agent or Holder, has trademark records for which the POU will expire within 120 days, a bulk POU revalidation page will become available. You can access this page by navigating to your TMCH account and clicking on the button "bulk validate POU" at the bottom right of the "Mark overview" page. Here, you will be able to select the trademark records for which the POU documents are:

  • Valid and can be “revalidated”.
  • No longer valid and need to be “invalidated”, after which new POU documentation needs to be uploaded via the standard procedure (How to submit and change a POU).
  • For further details on the different steps to revalidate your POU documents, please refer to our manual.
