Changes to trade mark law if the UK leaves the EU without a deal

Changes to trade mark law in the event of no deal from the European Union.



This relates to European Union Trade Marks only and sets out the changes we are making to UK law in the event of no deal.

Leaving the EU with a deal remains the government’s top priority; this has not changed. However, a responsible government must plan for every eventuality, including a no deal scenario.

This will cover the impact on UK right holders, businesses, and other organisations. Information relating to registered Community designs and international trade mark and design rights will be published in due course.

This complements the technical notice on trade marks and EU exit published on 24 September 2018
