Notice No. 10/22
of the President of the German Patent and Trade Mark Office of 2 December 2022 concerning the amount of the provision costs for the supply of machine-readable data (weekly publications on patents and utility models, trade marks and designs in the form of data packages via DPMAconnectPlus) in 2023
Within the scope of fulfilling its statutory duties in connection with the different types of IP rights, the German Patent and Trade Mark Office produces machine-readable data which can be supplied to third parties for setting up, development and updating their own IP databases and other information systems and services. This requires the conclusion of a contract and the payment of the provision costs. These costs are determined on an annual basis and communicated to the public.
The costs for the provision of weekly publications on patents and utility models, trademarks and designs in the form of data packages will be increased from EUR 7 in 2022 to EUR 8 per data category and per delivery in 2023.
The President of the German Patent and Trade Mark Office
