IPO Relocated and New Regulation on Fees for IPOs Services

On 1 July 2023, a new Regulation on Fees for the Intellectual Property Office's services entered into force. Expense items remain for the most part unchanged, however Article 1 on reimbursement of fees and Article 6 on Supplementary Protection have been altered.

There is now a provision for the refund of fees paid in excess, as well as annual fees that fall due under proceedings concerning the re-establishment of rights, if such request is finally rejected. Also, in accordance with the amendments to the Patent Act No 17/1991 with Act No 57/2021, a handling fee for a notification of an exemption from Supplementary Protection has been added.

The Regulation 536/2023 is available here.

Furthermore, the Icelandic Intellectual Property Office has moved its offices to Katrínartún 4, Reykjavik.
