On request, the International Bureau provides two types of certified extracts from the International Register concerning the contents of a given international registration (either in force or having expired):
This service is subject to the payment of the fee prescribed under the Common Regulations under the Madrid Agreement and Protocol.
As from August 1, 2013, users of the Madrid system can request the following new special services:
|- Certified copy of a certificate of an international registration and of a certificate of its renewal||50|
|- Surcharge for an expedited establishment of a certified extract||100|
|- Surcharge for the legalization of a certified extract||75|
These new special services are available upon request and against the payment of a fee.
Pursuant to Article 5ter of the Madrid Agreement and the Madrid Protocol, extracts from the International Register requested with a view to their production in one of the Contracting Parties of the Madrid System shall be exempt from any legalization.
The detailed certified extract consists of an analysis of the situation of an international registration. It consists of a photocopy of the international registration as originally published in the WIPO Gazette, with, as the case may be, details from the International Bureau of any subsequent change, refusal, invalidation, correction or renewal recorded in the International Register at the time the extract is prepared.
The detailed certified extract is established in the language of the application for international registration. The cost for a detailed certified extract depends on the number of entries made in the International Register in respect of a given international registration and cannot be determined before the extract is prepared; the basic fee according to the Schedule of Fees is 155 Swiss francs up to three pages and 10 Swiss francs for each page after the third.
The simple certified extract consists of certified copies of all the entries that have been published in the WIPO Gazette with regard to a given international registration, together with, as the case may be, any notification of refusal of protection or invalidation received by the International Bureau at the time the extract is prepared.
The simple certified extract is established in the language of the application for international registration. The cost for a simple certified extract depends mainly on the number of pages constituting the notifications of refusal of protection issued by the Offices of the designated Contracting Parties and cannot be determined before the extract is prepared; the basic fee according to the Schedule of Fees is 77 Swiss francs up to three pages and 2 Swiss francs for each page after the third.
