Statute on Fees on the Eurasian Patent Organization

On December 20, 2006 in accordance with the Decision of the eighteenth (thirteenth ordinary) session of the Administrative Council of the Eurasian Patent Organization held on September 5-6, 2006 Order №30 of the Eurasian Patent Office confirmed a new version of the Statute on Fees of the Eurasian Patent Organization which entered into force on 1 February, 2007. In this connection the Eurasian Patent Office explains the following.

1. Before the new version of the Statute on Fees enters into force (before February 1, 2007) payment for the performance of legally significant actions in respect of a Eurasian application or a Eurasian patent, shall be paid in accordance with the Statute on Fees in force before February 1, 2007.

As from February 1, 2007 fees shall be paid in accordance with the new Statute on Fees.

The date of payment determining the amount of a fee to be paid shall be the date of the debiting of the amount from the payer's account or the date of payment of the fee through a bank without opening an account or the date of the receiving by the Eurasian Patent Office a copy of the payment order to debit the amount from the payer's account.

2. Taking into account Item 3 of the Present Interpretations, starting from February 1, 2007 payment of fees in amounts fixed before February 1, 2007 shall be considered to be paid unduly, i.e. not corresponding to the amount fixed. In such cases the applicant (patent owner) shall be notified of the need to make an extra payment as stipulated by the Patent Regulations under the Eurasian Patent Convention and the Statute on Fees.

3. Where the amount of payment (extra payment) of a corresponding fee in the notification of the Eurasian Patent Office sent before February 1, 2007 was fixed in US Dollars, the corresponding payment (extra payment) of the fee paid within the time limit mentioned in the notification shall be considered as paid correctly.

4. For the correct amounts of fees acting from February 1, 2007 please see the new List of fees on EAPO web-site: www.eapo.org, section "Бланки" (Forms), Russian version.
