The Eurasian Patent Office increases the official fees on 1 July 2022

The Eurasian Patent Office increases the official fees on 1 July 2022

The Administrative Council of the Eurasian Patent Organization approved the amendments to the Statute on Fees of the Eurasian Patent Office in part of applications and patents for inventions. The amendments result in 30% increase of the official fees, which will be paid on or after 1 July 2022, irrespective of when the payment is due. Therefore, if there are any fees due with respect to patent applications, it is possible to save on the amount of these fees by paying them before 1 July 2022.
