N. What happens to an EU Trade Mark application that is pending on the day the transition period ends?

If you have an EU Trade Mark application that is still pending on 1 January 2021 you will need to apply to register a comparable UK trade mark in the 9 months after 1 January 2021. Your comparable UK trade mark will retain the earlier filing date of the pending EU Trade Mark and you will be able to claim any priority you had on the pending EU application, along with any UK seniority claims recorded against it. The comparable UK application will undergo examination from UKIPO.
