The World Intellectual Property Organization offers a wide range of global IP services, notably under the PCT system and through the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center. Their purpose is to offer time- and cost-effective assistance to innovators and their counsel in protecting their inventions and resolving any related disputes.
To optimize the synergies between these WIPO services for their users, the PCT and the WIPO Center have arranged for PCT users to benefit from WIPO’s dispute resolution services at special discounted rates.
As of June 1, 2012 a 25% reduction on the WIPO Center's registration and administration fees applies in proceedings commenced under the WIPO Mediation, Arbitration, Expedited Arbitration and Expert Determination Rules, where either party or both parties is/are named as applicant or inventor in a published PCT application.
The WIPO Center's reduced fee schedules for PCT users are available at the following webpages:
