New Official Fees in Ukraine
In December 2004 the Ukrainian Government adopted a Decree, which introduced new official fees in the field of intellectual property. The decree came into force on February 5, 2005.
New fees have been established for recordal of changes against pending applications, as well as for the publication of grant for trademarks, patents, industrial designs and utility models.
Regarding trademark matters, the amendments include an additional fee for applications in colour. The basic filing and renewal fees will cover only one class of goods/services. Therefore, an extra fee is foreseen for each additional class in excess of one.
For substantive examination of patents, a lower discount is foreseen if a search report is available (30% instead of 50%).
With respect to the annuities, the 1st and 2nd ones shall not be covered by the filing fee for patents and industrial designs.
Official fees for foreign applicants have been fixed in Euros.
