The Moroccan Office of Industrial and Commercial Property (OMPIC) recently announced an increase on its Intellectual Property official fees, including trademarks, patents and industrial designs.
Although Morocco has a comprehensive regulatory and legislative system for IP protection, in 2015, the authorities concerned voted into law the agreement between the European Patent Office (EPO) and the Moroccan Patent Office, which simplified the patenting system in Morocco.
This increase in the oficial fees, which will be effective starting October 1st of 2017, will grant a reduction of up to 50% of users using the OMPIC online services.

This country remains with high ambitions which welcomes foreign investments. Along with local development, this will certainly contribute for Morocco’s growth.
