Who is participating?

The participating offices commit to provide a common statement of transparent quality standards which fully meet the needs of our customers and which are structured to enable adoption by any European Industrial Property office. All European IP Offices are invited to participate in Quality by implementing a number of quality standards.

What to know before applying?

The offices have flexibility to select the quality standards that they want to make available on this Quality tool in relation to particular services rendered. The office may choose to subscribe to an objective that is shared with other offices, or, if it prefers, may identify a specific objective for itself. The office will have the option to explain its reasons, should it choose an individual objective.
