New Manual: How to renew your Mark Record.
This document provides an overview of all country codes, jurisdictions and transliterations.
The TMCH project provides an automated interface to allow users to interact in an automated fashion with the data stored in the Clearinghouse database (TMCH database). XML has been widely used by registries and registrars to provide an automated interfaces (the API) for their
data exchange. This API provides similar functionality and will be provided using TLS to be as close to the current EPP standard as possible. The API may only be used by Trademark Agents that have contracted with the Clearinghouse.
This document contains some sample of commands and responses based on the XSD that should help building implementations to use the API provided to get direct access to the various objects in the TMCH database in an automated fashion.
The complete XSD scheme can be found under the section XSD schemes. It extends the Signed Mark Data (SMD) XSD description draft-lozano-smd-01.txt that was provided by ICANN. The structure of the mark block is intentionally included and not modified to prevent misunderstanding, make the mapping easy and prevent misinterpretation of the various fields.
These Payment Terms and Conditions supplement the Clearinghouse Validation Terms and Conditions.
This guide will provide the guidelines on how to change the contract data of your account.
You can only change your contract data if all the mark records linked to your account have status “Incorrect” or if you have no mark records linked to your account. If you do have verified mark records linked to your account and you still wish to change your contract data all mark records will be assigned status incorrect and will be validated again. The mark records that were previously assigned status verified will most likely be invalid after this validation.
We strongly suggest that you create a new account if you already have verified mark records linked to your old account.
This guide will provide the guidelines on how to add domain labels to verified Mark Records.
Not to be confused with abused domain name labels, for more information in how to add Abused Domain Name labels please refer to: How to Manage UDRP/Court cases and Labels
The Clearinghouse guidelines provide an overview of the eligibility requirements and what type of marks may be accepted for inclusion in the Clearinghouse.

This manual explains how to add a Proof of Use document after the mark has been verified and correct it, should this be necessary.
Out of the Clearinghouse implementation discussions, a Strawman solution was proposed to
balance and address the concerns of affected stakeholders. This covered the inclusion of domain
names previously determined to have been abusively registered (hereinafter “Abused DNL”)
in the Clearinghouse in order to receive Trademark Claims services.
ICANN has requested the Clearinghouse to implement the point of the Strawman model. The following guide explains how to add the abused domain name labels and their corresponding UDRP or Court Cases.
It details the Basic and Advanced fee structure for registering in the Clearinghous as well as the Status Point system and how to register for a Prepayment Account as Trademark Holder or Trademark Agent.
