New Industrial Design Office Practice Manual Published

The Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) announced the publication of the new Industrial Design Office Practice Manual (IDOP) that came into force on November 5, 2018.

The IDOP is an important tool for communicating CIPO's internal office practices and procedures to applicants and their agents; it is the primary public source for information on how to prosecute an application for the registration of an industrial design.

The IDOP sets out how CIPO will operationalize the legislative and regulatory changes necessary for Canada to accede to the Hague Agreement Concerning the International Registration of Industrial Designs (the Hague Agreement).
