OHIM Fee Reduction

News on OHIM Fee Reduction

March 26, 2009

The EU Registry recently announced a fee reduction from €1,600 for an online application and registration in 3 classes to €900. A draft Regulation is currently being prepared for adoption by the Commission, following which it will be published in the Official Journal. The fee reductions will take effect the day after publication. This is expected to be in early May. 

Under the transitional arrangements agreed, applications currently in the pipeline, for which OHIM has not issued the request for payment of the registration fee by the date on which the new fee schedule comes into effect, will not have to pay the current registration fee of €850. For these applicants the €750 paid for an online application for up to three classes will be the only fee for the EU trade mark.
