A recent Resolution No. 006-2012 CD-IEPI of the Ecuadorian Intellectual Property Institute has imposed substantial increase on the official fees in respect of patents and Industrial Designs.
The new charges are expected to be effective any time this month as soon as it gets published in the Official Gazette, accordingly, we invite our clients to file any new patent application as soon as possible and to pay any maintenance fees in advance both for granted patents and patents applications in order to avoid being charged on the new higher rate.
Please note that the new schedule of charges will reflect the increase of official fees only while our professional charges remain unchanged.
