The Center believes that mediation should be cost effective. In consultation with parties and mediators, the Center ensures that fees charged in a WIPO mediation in IPOS proceedings are appropriate in light of the circumstances of the dispute.
For disputes involving intellectual property rights protected in Singapore, a not-for-profit Schedule of Fees for administration fees and mediator fees applies.
|WIPO Center's Administration Fee||Mediator's Fees|
|SGD 50 per party||SGD 500 per party (includes 4 hours of preparation and mediation)
SGD 200 per hour per party (*)
In addition, effective April 1, 2019, parties to IPOS proceedings can benefit from the Enhanced Mediation Promotion Scheme, which will fund their mediation costs up to SGD 10,000 when Singapore intellectual property rights are involved, and up to SGD 12,000 where foreign intellectual property rights are added to the subject-matter of mediation.
