Afghanistan:  No Grace Period for Trademark Renewals

The Trademark Office in Afghanistan announced that there is no longer a grace period for the renewal of an expired trademark.

The previous practice at the TMO allowed for a six-month grace period.  With this announcement, it is advisable that all renewals must be filed no later than one month before their expiration date.
