On 13 February 2017, the President of the Academy of the Scientific Research and Technology issued Executive Decree, No. 1 of 2017. The Decree, effective as of 13 February 2017, affects the official fee that is levied for the examination of patent applications in Egypt – now increased from EGP 7000 to EGP 17 530. The official fees will be reviewed annually in light of the US Dollar currency exchange fluctuations.
