New Application Guidelines


On 27 May 2013, INPI published new guidelines on the application of the Portuguese Industrial Property Code. This document was on a public consultation phase until 27 June 2013 and can be found here (Portuguese version only).

These guidelines do not constitute a law and their purpose is to work as an orientation guide for INPI's examiners, contributing to the standardization of criteria and procedures followed in assessing the actions relating to industrial property rights, with gains to predictability, consistency and coherence of the decisions that are made on a daily basis by the Office. The new guidelines aim also to be an useful tool to the outside, assisting applicants, holders and other interested parties in their interaction with INPI.
