Iran - Trade Mark Electronic Application System Launched

The Iranian Trade Marks Registrylaunched trade mark electronic application system on November 18, 2012that allows trade mark applications to be submitted online. This development follows successful inauguration of electronic application system for patents and industrial designs a few months ago.

Currently, the Trade Marks, Patents and Industrial Design Registries only accepts electronic filing of applications.There have been no changes in filing procedures or formalities requirement, but a new application number format will be assigned automatically by the electronic application system. The original supporting documents (i.e. power of attorney, applicant's incorporation document) are still required to be submitted to the Office in hard copy.

The electronic platform for filing of trade mark applications and workflow system is available at http://iripo.ssaa.ir. The platform is only designed in Persian and no English version is available yet.

The system providesfor examination, correspondence, publication and registration procedures electronically. However, the opposition, hearing, renewal, assignment and license recordation procedures are handled as before.

The Iranian Patent Office and Industrial Design Office have launched the electronic application system a few months ago. The electronic platforms for filing of patent and industrial design applications and workflow system are available only in Persian at the same address at http://iripo.ssaa.ir.

The Iranian Industrial Property Office is gradually shifting to a completely paperless office in a phased manner during the next years.
