HUNGARY

Registration of trademarks Hungary is a party to both the Madrid Protocol and the Madrid Agreement. Registration is required to acquire trademark protection. It can also be obtained by receiving enough public acknowledgement.

Requirements

A local agent must submit a trademark application to the Patent Office. All you need is an unregistered power of attorney. A domestic registration is not required for foreign candidates.

Renewal

A trademark is protected for ten years following the date of filing. The term may be extended an additional ten years. An application for renewal must be filed with the additional late renewal cost within the grace period of six months following the expiration of the trademark validity, or within six months of the trademark validity expiring.

Duration

In Hungary, a trademark registration is effective from the registration date for a period of ten years. Ten-year renewal periods are available for the registration.
