In the new Industrial Property Law no. 6769, an utility model applicant asks the TPMK to search the utility model together with the application or by paying the fee within two months from the date on which the application is made. If such a request is made, a research report will be prepared, notified to the applicant and published in the patent bulletin. If not requested, the application will be considered withdrawn. Within three months of the publication of the research report, both the applicant and the third parties may submit an objection or comment to the content of the research report.
