For each additional class applicants have to pay approximately EUR 50 (USD 55). The trademark registration fee has almost doubled and now amounts to approximately EUR 140 (USD 154).

A 15 percent discount on the examination fee for patent applications that include a valid international search report or an international preliminary examination report has been reintroduced.

Small and middle-sized entities that are residents of Kazakhstan are now entitled to a 20 percent discount on applications for patents, utility models, industrial designs and selection achievements.
