The state enterprise “Ukrainian Institute of Intellectual Property” by its order suspended the possibility of ordering accelerated consideration of applications from October 3, 2022.
The decision concerns the possibility for the applicant to pay an additional fee for the accelerated consideration of applications for patents for inventions, utility models, industrial designs, and trademarks.
Thus, the TM registration procedure in Ukraine cannot yet be faster than 18-24 months, as it is today.
Before that, for an additional 5,220 hryvnias for one class for word and image marks and for 9,396 hryvnias for combined marks, it was possible to shorten the application review period to 8-9 months.
The corresponding opportunities for accelerated examination of applications are suspended until the end of the martial law regime in Ukraine.
