The Moroccan Office of Industrial and Commercial Property (OMPIC) has recently announced an increase in the official fees in respect of all intellectual property matters with effect from 1 October 2017. This includes the official fees for all trade mark, design and patent matters. OMPIC offers up to a 50% reduction in official fees if applications are filed online, but the online system is not fully operational yet and some formalities still need to be done manually.
