Notice No. 6/2023
of the President of the German Patent and Trade Mark Office of 7 December 2023 concerning the amount of the provision costs for the supply of machine-readable data (weekly publications on patents and utility models, trade marks and designs in the form of data packages via DPMAconnectPlus) in 2024
Within the scope of fulfilling its statutory duties in connection with the different types of IP rights, the German Patent and Trade Mark Office produces machine-readable data which can be supplied to third parties for setting up, development and updating their own IP databases and other information systems and services. This requires the conclusion of a contract and the payment of the provision costs. These costs are determined on an annual basis and communicated to the public.
The costs for the provision of weekly publications on patents and utility models, trademarks and designs in the form of data packages remain unchanged from 2023 at Euro 8 per data type and delivery date for 2024.
The President of the German Patent and Trade Mark Office
