Change in Fees

The Office recently reviewed certain fee items and identified an inconsistency in respect of the fees charged for a request to change the name and/or address of the applicant / proprietor of a trade mark. Different fees, depending on the status of the application / registration, were being charged for what is essentially the same request. The Controller has decided to standardise the fees and from hereon, the lower fee of €6 will apply to requests to change a name and/or address, irrespective of the status of the application / registration.
