How much does it cost to submit a trademark or other signs application

For registration, two types of fees should be considered: the fee of the register application and the fee associated with the maintenance of the right.

You can register trademarks (association trademarks and certification trademarks), logos, appellations of origin, geographical indications and rewards. Costs vary according to:
  • the modality of registration
  • the number of classes of goods and services that you want to indicate in the case of the trademarks (the cost of the application includes a class).
