Patent Annuities in Turkey
Our Turkey patent lawyers provide services for patent annuities in Turkey. Patents and applications thereof may be kept in force as long as annual fees are paid. The due date for an annuity payment in the Turkish Patent system is the corresponding filing date in each subsequent year for conventional patents/utility models and European Patent applications and it is the international filing date for PCT national phase entries.
Any annuity may be paid subject to a fine within a 6-month grace period following its due date in Turkey. After termination of the grace period lapsed protection can be obtained by submitting an acceptable excuse for non-payment and requesting reinstatement of the patent.
Official fees, namely “annuities” should be deposited in the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office by a representative of the company or a patent law firm. They are payable for the second and each subsequent year following the relevant filing date, that is, the Turkish filing date for conventional applications, international filing date under PCT or EPC.
The annuities which are due or overdue should be paid in advance upon entry into the Turkish Phase. Payment of an annuity may be delayed for 6 months by paying a fine. Delays in meeting time limits for payment of annual fees may be excused in case of force majeure.
