New official fees came into force in Latvia on January 1, 2016

The new legislation is expected to significantly improve the work of the Patent Office and the Board of Appeal, allowing to register and protect the industrial property rights in Latvia more effectively. The following laws are amended as of January 1, 2016:

  • Patent Law;
  • Law "On Trademarks and Geographical Indications";
  • Design Law;
  • Law "On Taxes and Duties".

The main change in the law of fees is that before said date the Patent Office services were fixed in six different regulations and certain industrial property law norms, however, starting with January 1, 2016 they are summarized in two main regulations, namely services price list of the Patent Office and price list of Industrial Property Board of Appeal.

At the same time the new price list approves no significant changes into the cost of the services. The new official fees can be found using the following link.
