According to the Decree No. 62/20 published on 4 March 2020 new official fees are applicable in the Angolan Industrial Property Office as from 5 March 2020.
The last amendment of the official fees in Angola had been made in 1997. Therefore with the new decree the fees for several actions regarding industrial property rights, namely trademarks, patents, utility models and designs are substantially increased.
Furthermore the new table of fees published by the Decree No. 62/20 simplifies the calculation of the relevant items e.g. the fee for trademark registration is a single fee instead of a group of fees (application fee, request fee, publication fee, etc.).
In the field of patents new fees were adopted for claims over 15 representative and for anticipation or postponement of publication.
