Trademark Protection Term
The term of protection for a registered trademark is 10 years from the date of application. This term may be renewed an unlimited number of times.
When is the due date?
The request for renewal shall be submitted in the 6-month period before the expiry date of the registration and the information regarding the payment of the fee needs to be submitted to the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office (the “Office”) within the same period.
If the request for renewal is not made or the information regarding payment of the renewal fee is not submitted to the Office by the due date, the renewal request may be submitted and the renewal fee may be paid within a further period of 6 months following the expiry date of the registration, provided that an additional fee for late payment of the renewal fee or late submission of the request for renewal is paid within this period.
Unless the request for renewal is made and the renewal fee is paid within the respective additional 6 months, the trademark rights will expire.
Renewal fees are updated each year. Renewal fees to be applied in the respective year are announced in the fee tariff which is published at the beginning of each year in the Official Gazette.
Although partial renewal is also possible, renewal fees are fixed regardless of the number of classes of goods or services subject to renewal.
The official renewal fees, which are valid for 2023, are listed below:
Within 6 months before the expiry date of registration: TRY 2,450
Within 6 months after the expiry date of registration: TRY 4,560
