Utility Model Renewals (Annuities) in Turkey (FAQs and Fee Schedule) (2023)

Updated: Aug 15

What is the protection term of a utility model in Turkey (Türkiye)?

In Turkey, utility models are protected for 10 years. This period begins on the date of application. However, for the protection to continue throughout 10 years, a renewal fee (i.e., annuity, annual fee, maintenance fee) must be paid annually to the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office. The annuities need to be paid not only for registered utility models but also for pending applications.


When is the due date for utility model annuities in Turkey?

In Turkey, annuities for a utility model (or a utility model application) are paid in advance for the third year and each subsequent year. The due date of the annuity for the third year is the second anniversary (corresponding month and day) of the application date. The due dates of the subsequent years are also based on the anniversary of the utility model application. As the annuities are updated each year, these fees should be paid after the updated fees of the relevant year are published in the fee tariff in the Official Gazette.


Is there a grace period for the payment of utility model annuities in Turkey?

Yes. Within an additional period of 6 months after the due date of an annuity, it is possible to pay the relevant annuity by paying a higher fee to the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office.
