Design Renewals in Turkey (FAQs and Fee Schedule) (2023)

Updated: Aug 9

How long is a registered design valid in Turkey and for how long can the registration be renewed in Turkey (Türkiye)?

In Turkey, a design is registered for 5 years starting from the date of application. The registration can be renewed 4 times in 5-year renewal periods, up to 25 years in total. Upon renewal, the new registration period begins from the expiry date of the previous period (5 years from the date of application).


When is the due date for the renewal of design registrations in Turkey?

The renewal application should be filed within 6 months before the expiry date of the design registration. The renewal fee must be paid to the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office at the same time as the renewal application.


Is it possible to renew a design registration after the expiry date in Turkey?

Yes. Within an additional period of 6 months after the expiry date, it is possible to file a renewal application by paying a higher renewal fee to the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office.


What is your quote for the renewal of design registrations in Turkey?

With the registration number of your design, our software (integrated into our form) will automatically identify your design registration and accordingly calculate and share our fee quote by taking into consideration the due date of renewal, the date of the payment request, and the number of designs in a multiple-design registration.

Do you need a power of attorney?

No. We do not need a power of attorney for renewal of design registrations.


However, for partial renewals (renewals only for certain designs in a multiple design registration) only, please contact us at support@ip-river.com and we will provide our power of attorney which would only need to be signed and scanned.


When will you file the renewal application for my design registration?

Upon your instruction through IPriver, we will file your instructions through the online filing system of the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office within one business day and provide you with the official filing document within the same day.


Will I receive a new design certificate upon renewal?

Yes. The Turkish Patent and Trademark Office will issue a new design registration certificate in pdf format, usually within a couple of weeks following our renewal application. We will forward the new certificate to you as soon as we receive it.


Please note that the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office stopped issuing physical documents a few years ago.


Do I need to be represented by a Turkish patent and/or trademark attorney for design renewals in Turkey?

Yes. Design owners (natural or legal persons) who reside outside of Turkey must be represented by a Turkish patent and/or trademark for a renewal filing before the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office.


Will my renewal instructions be filed by a registered patent and/or trademark attorney?

Yes. All your instructions will be filed with the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office by a registered patent and trademark attorney, i.e., Mr. Dogukan Berk Aksoy from Aksoy IP, a full-service IP agency and law firm based in Ankara, Turkey.
