Numbering Format for UK Comparable Registrations Announced

IP Holders of EU trade mark registrations are to be automatically and without cost be issued with comparable UK registrations, whether there is a Withdrawal deal or not. The UK IPO has now announced how it will be numbering the comparable UK registrations. They will take the same number as the EU registration, but be prefixed with UK009. If therefore you have an EU Trade Mark Registration No. 6342042, the UK comparable registration which will be created will take the number UK0096342042.

This information will greatly assist trade mark owners and attorney firms prepare for Brexit in creating records and monitoring deadlines for the comparable rights which are to issue.

Further information is available on and we are happy to answer any queries you may have.
