On Friday, June 23, 2017, the Argentine Association of IP Agents (AAAPI) published in their Bulletin No. 1415, the discussion relating to the possible increase of official fees.  This has caused many questions for foreign colleagues and clients, especially in regards to the fee increase amount as well as when the increase will go into effect.

We are happy to report that as of publication date, this matter is only in discussion.The important discussion points are summarized in English below.

Such increase is under consideration – when it will be applied or how much will the fees raise is still unknown.  The AAAPI and the INPI are debating this issue, but no official communication has been published to date. The June 23rd Bulletin enclosed the terms of the project under debate, including the suggested new fees and effective date.

Moeller will keep you informed of the further developments as they arise.
