Trademark registration changes

Once you obtained your Tunisian trademark registration, you must take certain steps to maintain your registration updated. You have to change your trademark registration details with the Tunisian Trademark Office (INNORPI) once there a change in your identity or your address. We are specialist in managing Trademark registration changes.

It is important that the details included in the Tunisian Trademarks Register are correct and up-to-date. If anything changes, you can ask us to manage your Trademark registration changes and to amend the details in the National Register.

The most common change is, of course, a change of address. However, your company’s name may also change, or you may transfer (sell) your trademark, grant another party a licence or give your trademark in pledge to the bank. In addition, another party may have a writ of attachment served on your trademark registration, or you may wish to surrender (withdraw) your trademark registration (possibly for some of the goods or services). These are all matters which have to be recorded on Tunisian Trademarks Register so that they can be referred to in dealings with others. 

Which common Trademark registration changes are possible ?
