EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order

This Order amends the fees prescribed in Schedule 6 to The Trade Marks (International Registration) Order 2008. The Order provides for three fees of £100 which are payable on a notice

of opposition to the conferring of protection on an international registration. The three fees are payable where: the grounds of opposition are based solely on either or both of sub-sections 5(1) and (2) of the Trade Marks Act 1994 (the “Act”); where notice is given of fast track opposition to the conferring of protection on an international registration (trade marks rule 17A) and upon an application to add grounds, other than under section 5(1) or 5(2) of the Act, to an opposition

to the conferring of protection on an international registration (trade marks rule 62(1)(e)). This Order provides for a fee of £250 to be payable on an appeal to the person

appointed under section 76 of the Act in proceedings between two or more parties. A separate impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as it is

made in consequence of the Trade Marks (Fast Track Opposition) (Amendment) Rules 2013. However, a full impact assessment of the effect that the Trade Marks (Fast

Track Opposition) (Amendment) Rules 2013 will have on the costs of business and the voluntary sector is available from the Intellectual Property Office, Concept House, Cardiff Road, Newport NP10 8QQ and is annexed to the Explanatory Memorandum

which is available alongside that instrument on www.legislation.gov.uk. Copies of that impact assessment have also been placed in the libraries of both Houses of Parliament.
