In Switzerland, according to the Article 11(1) of the Swiss Trademark Act “a trademark shall enjoy protection to the extent that it is used in commerce in connection with the goods and services for which it is claimed”. The consequence of non-use after the grace period is that the mark is vulnerable to cancellation upon request of third parties. Switzerland has its own peculiarities with respect to trademark use. With the implementation of the revocation action in 2017, compliance with Swiss practice became even more crucial to maintain trademarks rights.
