The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) recently issued a bulletin on the New Madrid Protocol webpages for international trademark applicants ( Specifically, the USPTO explains that its website has updated content to make it easier to understand and include:

  • An overview of the Madrid Protocol process
  • Instructions on how to apply for an international trademark registration  
  • An explanation of what happens after submitting an international application   
  • Details on how to maintain your international registration  

Additionally, the USPTO states that it now has websites specifically targeted for outbound applicants (those who want to use the Madrid Protocol to apply for registrations in other countries), and inbound applicants (those who want to use the Madrid Protocol to apply for a U.S. trademark registration).

As a reminder, per the USPTO’s website, the Madrid Protocol (the common name for the international trademark registration treaty) is a convenient and efficient way for trademark owners worldwide to file one application to register their trademark in multiple countries under one streamlined application and payment process.
