State Intellectual Property Service of Ukraine announces the start of functioning of the International Searching Authority (ISA) and International Preliminary Examining Authority (IPEA) under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT)

The Ukrainian Patent Office has become the 20th International Searching Authority and International Preliminary Examining Authority in the world along with such institutions as the European Patent Office, United States Patent and Trademark Office, Japanese Patent Office, the Canadian Intellectual Property Office, the Spanish Patent Office and so on.

According to the Agreement as of February 5, 2016 the Ukrainian Patent Office has become competent to conduct an international search and international preliminary examination on international applications filed with said Office as a Receiving Office.

The official fee for conducting the International Search and International Examination by the Ukrainian Patent Office is fixed at 300 EUR and 160 EUR correspondingly.
