Cyprus implements trade mark e-filing and e-Services

    The Department of Registrar of Companies and Official Receiver has implemented e-Filing for trademarks. Moreover on 27 October the office received first e-renewal application and announced implementation of e-Services. Both tools are part of the Software Package developed under the framework of the Cooperation Fund.

    The new e-filing system represents a big step forward in the way trademarks are processed and registered, making applications easier, quicker and more accessible to users of the Cyprus trade mark system.
    The e-Services project aims to develop a set of web-based tools for national and regional EU IP Offices to facilitate the electronic filing of trade mark oppositions, trade mark and design registrations and renewals, trade mark cancellations and design invalidities.

    The current number of Cooperation Fund tool and services integrations across the European Trade Mark and Design Network now stands at 361.

    More information on the Cooperation Fund tools can be found at www.tmdn.org, the online home of the European Trade Mark and Design Network.
