To follow the progress of the legislation, see Practice Note: Intellectual property—Brexit tracker.
Since IP completion day (11.00pm on 31 December 2020), the UK is no longer part of the EU trade mark (EUTM) regime. This means that the UK is no longer included in the territory covered by an EUTM and is no longer subject to Regulation (EU) 2017/1001, which was revoked on IP completion day pursuant to the Trade Marks (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019, SI 2019/269. This also applies to international trade mark registrations which designate the EU.
As a consequence, the UK set up a system whereby the holder of an EUTM as at IP completion day automatically became the holder of a comparable trade mark in the UK. For further information, see Practice Note: What does IP completion day mean for intellectual property?
