P1030184-300x225On the 27th of October the OHIM announced that from November 24, OHIM will only examine trademark applications and process any mail related to them after they are paid for.

According to OHIM 4% of the Community trademark applications they receive are examined but not paid for – and this figure is increasing.

By linking the examination of an application to its payment, the OHIM will be making sure that files that are paid for are treated in a timely manner and will avoid examining files that will never be paid for.
