As of November 19 – New Amounts of the Individual Fee regarding Turkey

Common RegulationsIn accordance with Rule 35(2)(d) of the Common Regulations under the Madrid Agreement and Protocol, the Director General of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) has established that as from November 19, 2018, the amounts of the individual fee payable in respect of Turkey will change.

Those amounts will be:
  • 73 Swiss francs for one class of goods or services and 14 Swiss francs for each additional class, when designating Turkey in an international application or subsequently;
  • 72 Swiss francs, independent of the number of classes, when renewing an international registration in which Turkey has been designated.

These amounts will be payable where Turkey

(a)     is designated in an international application which is received by the Office of origin on or after that date;  or

(b)     is the subject of a subsequent designation which is received by the Office of the Contracting Party of the holder on or after that date, or is filed directly with the International Bureau of WIPO on or after that date;  or

(c)     has been designated in an international registration which is renewed on or after that date.

The Madrid System for the International Registration of Marks is governed by the Madrid Agreement, concluded in 1891, and the Protocol relating to that Agreement, concluded in 1989. The system makes it possible to protect a mark in a large number of countries by obtaining an international registration that has effect in each of the designated Contracting Parties.
