Regulations of Patent Fees Enter into Force on March 1, 2012

    To comply with the enforcement, on March 1, 2012, of the “TW-Support Using the PPH Agreement (TW-SUPA)” and to conform to the “user-pays” principle, a clause was inserted to the Regulations of Patent Fees governing substantive examination of invention patent application.     

    Accordingly, applicants eligible under the terms of TW-SUPA should pay NT$4,000 for each application of accelerated examination. It is hoped that such enforcement will lead to the establishment of a reasonable fee collection mechanism.
