Find out everything you need to know about sending submissions to the IPI or receiving trade mark related correspondence electronically in the sections below.
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.
You can request most register changes as well as the international registration of Swiss trade marks and applications via the Trade Mark Database. Either as a guest or with a user account. Please note that requests can only be made in German, French or Italian only.
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
For trade marks, you can also receive correspondence from the IPI by email after prior registration on one of the recognised delivery platforms and subsequent registration with the IPI. In this way, you can process, forward or archive IPI correspondence simply and easily. You can find all relevant information under electronic delivery.
