Official Publication Fees Increased

On September 28, 2017, the Minister of Internal Trade has issued a Ministerial Decree No. 2133 announcing an increase in the official publication fees for new trademarks and renewal applications, as well as publication for recordals of assignment, merger, and change of name and address.

The publication fee for accepted applications in the Official Gazette (for a list of goods of 10 words) will now be USD 200 instead of USD 70.

It should be noted that renewals with respect to trademarks filed or renewed before April 2007 will be published twice, the first time after acceptance and the second time after issuing the registration or renewal certificate. While renewals with respect to trademarks filed or renewed after April 2007, there will be only one publication after acceptance.

The decree became effective on October 15, 2017.
