Legalised Extracts Provided for Non-Contracting Parties

WIPO informs that the Office provides legalisation services for customers who need to present extracts in countries that do not participate in the Madrid System where legalisation is not mandatory for extracts presented in a Contracting Party of the Madrid System.

Any person (not just the trademark owner) can request a legalised extract from the International Register. Upon request, WIPO will certify your extract with an official WIPO stamp and original signature, and then forward the document on your behalf to the Geneva State Chancellery. From there, it will be delivered to the relevant country’s consulate or embassy in Switzerland for legalisation. WIPO will send you the final legalised document by post.

In addition, WIPO offers certified attestations and simple or detailed extracts containing an analysis of the history of the mark, as well as expedited delivery of these services.
