Submitting documents and receiving correspondence

Find out everything you need to know in order to make submissions to the IPI and to receive communications electronically.


Conventional channels of submission

You can send us the Word and PDF files available for download on the document and links page, as well as other documentation, by email. Please be sure to read the Terms of Use as well as the list of procedures for which submission by email is permitted.

Submission by post or courier is, of course, open to you for all procedures. The options available for each procedure can be found on the page submitting documentation for procedures.


Receive communications from the IPI electronically

We will be happy to send you all our communications electronically so that you can easily process, forward or archive them. You will first need to register with a recognised delivery platform and then apply to us for electronic delivery of communications for your chosen IP rights and procedures. You can find all relevant information under electronic delivery.
