The most common changes to a register entry of a Swiss trade mark can be requested online via the Trade Mark Database. You will need a user account to do so, which will be created by the IPI if you use electronic delivery to receive your correspondence.
Please note that for new patent applications, you must submit three copies of the technical documentation if you send them by post (only two copies are required if you are submitting them after having already filed the application). However, if you send your documents by email to the address patent.admin, you only need to attach one copy of the technical documentation as a PDF file. @ekomm.ipi .ch

In this way, you can process, forward or archive IPI correspondence simply and easily. You can find all relevant information under electronic delivery.
