Updates to IPONZ’s patent and trade mark fees will come into force on 13 February 2020.

Please be reminded that changes to IPONZ fees will commence on Thursday, 13 February 2020, following the results of our recent fee review and consultations.

These changes will be implemented during a scheduled maintenance period for the IPONZ website between 9:00pm and 11:00pm on 12 February 2020 NZT, along with other planned improvements to our online case management facility, and the Trade Mark Check online searching tool. Our online services will not be available during this time.
