The Mexican Institute of Industrial Property of Mexico announced this week the launch of a new tool, the Electronic Trademark Office, which allows multiple online procedures, including the registration of licenses, transmission of rights, oppositions or geographical indications and appellations of origin, among others.
The new tool, operational since Wednesday, thus joins other initiatives, such as Online Branding and Electronic Trademark Window, to respond to the present and future need to carry out the procedures before the IMPI without having to go to the windows .
“The purpose is to avoid saturations that could compromise compliance with healthy distance measures, during the contingency, but also after this period, it will save travel time and user resources to send documentation from anywhere in the country,” explains the Mexican government in a statement.
Users who wish to use the Electronic Trademark Office only need their Unique Population Registration Code (CURP) and an email, in order to register.
The procedures initiated online will be taken by the IMPI once it returns from the suspension of deadlines and activities.
