The Thai Department of Intellectual Property (“DIP”) has announced new filing fees notice on 8 August 2022 (“Announcement”) with immediate effect to be in compliance with the fees imposed by the International Searching Authorities (“ISA”) and current exchange rate.
New PCT International Application Filing Fees
The Announcement’s main points are as follows:
The International Application Filing Fees including International Filing Fee, Search Fee, and Transmittal Fee for the Thai Receiving Office (“RO”) are updated as per the attached Annex.
The late payment fee, based on Clause 10, paragraph two of the Ministerial Regulations on the Application for Patent Protection to Implement the Patent Treaty Cooperation B.E. 2552 (2009), the late payment charge is equal to 50% of the unpaid International Application Filing Fees as reported by a DIP representative. Without accounting for the additional fee for the foreign application having more than 30 sheets, the late payment fee cannot be more than 50% of the filing fees for the international application.
The lower rate of the international filing fee in the aforementioned Annex is available to applicants who are nationals of and who reside in one of the nations listed in the WIPO Notification of Applicability of 90% Reduction in Certain PCT Fees (applicable on or after 1 January 20202). If there are many applicants, each one of them must have the nationality and place of residence that are allowed under the aforementioned lists.
When a “small entity applicant” or “micro entity applicant” files an international application that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has designated as an ISA, the reduced rate of the Search Fee is applicable. Additional information regarding eligibility for and the establishment of “small entity” status and “micro entity” status is based on CFRs 1.27 and 1.29 of Title 37 of the Code of Federal Regulations, which govern patents, trademarks, and copyrights.
