The application fee includes the fee for three classes of goods or services. A class fee must be paid for each additional class.
The application fee and any class fees are request fees, which will be forfeited upon filing the request and payment (irrespective of the outcome of the trade mark registration procedure). This means that the request fees will not be refunded, for example, in case of withdrawal of the trade mark application.
Fees are only refunded in case of payment without legal ground. Please note that a refund fee of EUR 10 will be retained in that case.
If you are interested in having your application examined faster, you can file a request for accelerated examination. The fee for accelerated examination is EUR 200.
The initial term of protection of a trade mark is 10 years. You can renew it for further 10-year periods by paying the renewal fee.
