New official fees for Burundi applicants

Ministerial Decree No. 1582, which was issued on 14 September 2012, has imposed an increase in the official fees for the protection of all registered industrial property rights: this affects trade marks, patents, industrial designs, utility models, commercial names, integrated circuits and geographical indications.

The new schedule of official fees is said to distinguish between local and foreign applicants (who form the preponderant majority).
