Changes to Official Fees for e-Issuance of Original Certificates

On June 17, 2021, the Russian Government issued a ruling that introduced changes to the official fees related to the issuance of original certificates in accordance with Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation No. 922. The changes became effective on June 21, 2021.

These amendments are mainly aimed at encouraging applicants to obtain certificates for trademarks and patents in electronic form instead of paper form.

Previously, the issuance of original certificates for trademarks, geographical indications, appellations of origin and patents was subject to an issuance fee of RUB 2,000 for trademarks and RUB 1,500 for patents.

With this change, the fee will only be charged if the applicant specifically requests the paper original of the certificate.
