Act No. 634/2004 Coll. on administrative fees
Appendix: List of administrative fees

(fees are payable to the account: 3711-21526001/0710)

Variable symbols and numbering of applications for appellations of origin/geographical indications
The application number is designated: OP/ZO, four-digit year of filing + serial number
For example: OP/ZO 2003-209, OP/ZO 2006-234
The variable symbol (VS) consists of the digit 8 + year (four digits) + application serial number.
For example: for OP/ZO 2003-209, VS is: 82003209; for OP/ZO 2006-325, VS is: 82006325.
In case a payment is being made for a newly filed application and the payer has no knowledge of its number, the fee can be paid using the first number of the variable symbol only, i.e. 8. In such case, the name of the payer’s account has to be identical with the name of the applicant or the agent so that the payment can be identified.
