This is to advise our valuable clients that Ministerial Decree No. 1582 issued on 14 September 2012, which imposes an increase in the official fees for the protection of industrial property namely: trademarks, patents, industrial designs, utility models, commercial names, integrated circuits, and geographical indications.
The newly designed schedule of official fees has distinguished between local and foreign applicants. Our professional fees, however, remain unchanged. Updated schedules of charges will be made available upon request.
