    European cooperation: new online services in Slovenia

    The Slovenian Intellectual Property Office (SIPO), with the support of the EUIPO’s European cooperation projects, has improved the e-filing service it provides to its users following the implementation of the transposition of Directive (EU) 2015/2436.

    The front office platform, available via the SIPO website, now allows users to file applications electronically for the new types of trade marks (position, pattern, motion, multimedia, hologram). Slight modifications, in accordance with Directive (EU) 2015/2436, have been implemented for colour and sound marks.

    The e-filing of the new types of trade marks in Slovenia became available on 2 of November 2020.

    The launch of the improved e-filing service at the SIPO is another example of a successful, front office tool implementation developed and offered by the EUIPO to the national and regional intellectual property offices of the EU.

    This release is the result of work carried out by the EUIPO within the framework of the European cooperation projects. These projects support the intellectual property offices in developing more efficient, reliable and user-friendly tools and services for trade marks and designs within the European Union Intellectual Property Network (EUIPN).
