Communication of Notifications Changed

WIPO intends to increase the use of electronic communication and encourages applicants of international registrations or their appointed representatives to take advantage of electronic communication.

WIPO announced that from April 30, 2012, the office will send by registered mail, to applicants or to their appointed representatives, notifications relating to irregularities in international applications.

As from the aforementioned date, WIPO will begin by sending standard mail in lieu of registered mail, to the holders of international registrations or to their recorded representatives, notifications of provisional refusal based on an opposition.
