From the 1 January 2021, EUTMs will no longer protect trade marks in the UK. Under the Withdrawal Agreement Act, on the 1 January 2021, the IPO will create a comparable UK trade mark for all right holders with an existing EU trade mark.
Existing EUTMs will still protect trade marks in EU member states. UK businesses can still to apply the EU Intellectual Property Office for an EUTM.
There will be no changes to UK-registered trade marks as a result of the UK leaving the EU.
If you have a pending EUTM application, you'll be able to apply to register a comparable UK trade mark in the 9 months after 1 January 2021. You'll keep the earlier filing date of the pending EUTM.
