Macedonian State Office of Industrial Property Publishes New Fees

Nov 24 2009 - 11:54

On October 30, the State Office of Industrial Property of the Republic of Macedonia published new fees.

The changes to the fees are minor. All service fees remain the same. The only change is that unemployed individuals, students, retirees, and disabled persons do not have to pay for searches of the Patent Database. Also, all physical persons that apply for a patent in the area of ecology or protection of the environment can search the Patent Database for free.

In addition, if the patent application is submitted electronically, the granting and printing fees are reduced by 30 percent.

The Macedonian Government approved the fees on September 22, 2009.
