Can I transfer my Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH) record to Openprovider?
Yes, this is possible. The benefits of a transfer to Openprovider are a good price, and the availability of the different additional services that Openprovider offers like Sunrise registrations or protected marks lists. Order a TMCH transfer with the following steps:
- If you have the SMD-file at hand, upload that to the transfer page of the TMCH. The e-mail address linked to the TMCH order will receive an e-mail with an authorization code now.
- If you do not have the SMD-file at hand and you've applied for the TMCH order with another TMCH agent, ask that TMCH agent to send the code to the e-mail address linked to the TMCH order.
- If you do not have the SMD-file at hand and you've applied for the TMCH order directly at TMCH yourself, log in to the TMCH portal, open the mark record and press the "Send transfer code" button to send the code to the e-mail address linked to the TMCH order.
The code that you receive must be provided to Openprovider, after which we will transfer the mark for you.
Please note that the transfer token is valid for only 14 days. If that period expires, a new token must be requested.
The price for such a TMCH transfer is USD 50; the expiration date of the TMCH-order remains unchanged. Future renewals will be done through Openprovider.
