To register an expired trademark, first, you will have to verify whether it's still used by the entity which previously owned it, as the owner can revive it within six months of expiration. The best option would be to verify the usage of the trademark via an experienced trademark attorney.

After you have collected the necessary information, the process follows the standard new trademark application filing in the respective country.
