New schedule of fees at the Russian PTO since August 22, 2012

On August 22, 2012, the Russian Federation became a fully-fledged member of the World Trade Organization. The accession of Russia into the WTO will cement the integration of the Russian Federation into the global economy.

As a result of Russia’s accession into the WTO, there will be a substantial amendment to the governmental fees payable to the Russian Patent and Trademark Office. Up until recently, Russian residents have had substantial discounts on official fees. As of August 22, 2012, Russian residents and non-residents will be required to pay the same fees for inventions, utility models, and industrial designs.

Accordingly, official fees for non-residents will significantly decrease up to two – three times for inventions, utility models, and industrial designs. The official fees for trademarks, which are currently identical for Russian residents and non-residents, will increase for all applicants.
