How to apply internationally

You can print the application form MM2 External Link from the WIPO website, or you can fill in the form on-line and then print it out.

You must send your application form to the national trade mark office where the mark on which you are basing your international application is registered. So if you are basing your international application on a UK trade mark, you should send it to us at:

Madrid Applications Receiving Unit

Intellectual Property Office
Concept House
Cardiff Road
Newport
South Wales
NP10 8QQ
United Kingdom

or you can fax it to us on +44 (0)1633 817777, but if you fax your application you must also send the original form by post, because WIPO require an original copy of the mark.

We will then check your application to make sure that it matches your UK base application/registration and, if all is in order, we will certify your application and send it to WIPO.

If your International application differs in any way from your UK base application, we will contact you.
