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 fees prescribed under the Common Regulations under the Madrid Agreement and Protocol.
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.
Information regarding international registrations in force recorded in the International Register is available free of charge from the ROMARIN database.
Detailed certified extract
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.
Basic fee: 155 Swiss francs for up to three pages; 10 Swiss francs for each page after the third.
Simple certified extract
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.
Basic fee: 77 Swiss francs for up to three pages; 2 Swiss francs for each page after the third.
