The Ukrainian Patent Office has launched a major version of on-line filing system

Previously electronic filing system in Ukraine was operating in a test mode and was available for patent applications, utility models and trademarks for goods and services. During the period between 2011 - 2015 years the system passed extensive testing and was constantly improved based on the comments of experts and applicants. The main advantage of the system is reduction of the overall timeframe of processing of applications from filing to publication thereof as well as reduction of errors in the publications. Launching the complete version of the system now also allows not to forward the application in paper after it is filed using the on-line filing system which previously was required during its test mode.

Along with the introduction into operation of electronic filing system for inventions, utility models and trademarks the Ukrainian Patent Office announced launching of a 6-months trial operation of on-line electronic filing system for industrial designs, appellations of origin and topographies of integrated circuits.
