Security agreements

Publication date:

Amendment date: June 17, 2019

This practice notice provides guidance on the recording of security agreements.

Where a trademark has been put up as security, the Registrar of Trademarks will, upon written request, record a security agreement on the file of an application for the registration of a trademark or a trademark registration. A note to this effect will be placed on the trademarks database (for example, "Security Agreement placed on file – ").

Where a trademark is no longer the subject of a security agreement previously placed on file, the Registrar of Trademarks will, upon written request, record the removal of the security agreement. A note to this effect will be placed on the trademarks database (for example, "Security Agreement removed – ").
