Update from the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH)
On July 23rd, 2023, the Trademark Clearinghouse Certificate Authority (TMCH-CA) will expire. The Certificate Authority's expiration requires the re-issuance of the Trademark Validator (TMV) certificate, which is used for the SMD file.
These new certificates will be implemented simultaneously on February 15th, 2023 at 18:00 UTC to guarantee a smooth transition.
For you as a Trademark Agent, this means that on February 15th 2023 at 18:00 UTC, all of your active SMD files will be revoked and automatically regenerated.
The process of automatic revocation and regeneration will last for a period of maximum 24 hours. Please be aware that during this timeframe, all SMD files will be unavailable.
After the transition, older SMD files signed with the current TMCH-CA will no longer be valid.
If your TMCH order is processed by Openprovider,, we will make sure that you have your new SMD files for your registered trademark by February 18th, 2023at the latest.

All prices apply to one-year registrations, unless mentioned otherwise.
Be sure to take advantage of these promotions while they last!
