Intellectual Property Office launches digital IP renewal service

Following a successful trial period, the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) has officially launched their new digital renewals service:

The online service offers IPO's customers a way to renew up to 1,500 intellectual property (IP) rights in a single digital transaction. These rights include combinations of patents, trademarks and designs.

The service offers several benefits to the IPO's customers. It:

streamlines the bulk renewals process
provides instant validation of renewal applications
eliminates errors resulting from a manual process

Customers also benefit from automated electronic delivery of correspondence and receipts, certificates, and ability to complete transactions at the time and place that suits them.

The renewals service offers a taster of what you can expect from the IPO in future. As part of their One IPO Transformation Programme (, work is underway to develop a single, integrated system for all registered IP rights. The new, paper-free system would allow IP owners to access all IPO's services through one digital account, and easily manage all of their IP rights in one place.
