Upcoming deadline to renew trademarks registered before 2009 in Rwanda

September 18, 2019

Once again we remind you that the Law 31/2009, of December 2009, on the Protection of Intellectual Property in Rwanda established a 10-year duration period for trademarks, counting from the filing date.

In this connection, all trademarks registered in Rwanda before 2009 must be renewed until 14 December 2019.

Even though there is a grace period for late renewal, it is highly recommended to pay the renewal fees before the deadline as to avoid payment of surcharges.
