The WIPO Center is non-profit, and requires only a low administration fee that has been heavily discounted under our collaboration. To further keep costs low, the parties can choose to mediate at the WIPO Singapore Office (29 Heng Mui Keng Terrace, #06-16, Singapore 119620) free of charge.
Latest: In light of the global economic difficulties brought by COVID-19, the WIPO Center will waive its administration fee and cap the mediator's fees at a maximum of $5,000 for mediation cases in the context of IPOS proceedings from 1 January 2021 until 31 March 2021.
