IP Australia would like to thank everyone who contributed to the review of our proposed fee changes. These proposed fee changes will support IP Australia’s innovation policy to support small business and are consistent with our red-tape reduction initiatives.

We are now moving ahead to have the fee changes, as documented in Attachment A of the Cost Recovery Implementation Statement (CRIS), implemented. These changes are proposed to take effect from 12am AEDT, 10 October 2016, subject to amending regulations being made.

We urge our customers to be aware of the new fee arrangements for IP Australia’s products and services.

A full version of fee changes is provided on our Official Notice page.
