Details

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.

Stay up to date

The UK will leave the EU on 31 October. This page tells you what to do if there’s a no-deal Brexit. It will be updated if anything changes, including if a deal is agreed.
