New regime for Portuguese fees now in force
According to information published in the INTA Bulletin of November 15, 2009, Vol. 64, No. 21, Ministerial Order No. 1254/2009 (introducing changes to Portuguese Patent and Trademark Office official fees) was published on 14 October 2009, and came into effect on 23 October.
It appears from this information that registration fees, surcharges and revalidation fees are no longer due. This Order applies not only to applications submitted after 23 October but to applications for which the deadline for payment of the registration fee or its surcharge would have fallen after that date.
