About us

We are the Australian Government agency that administers intellectual property (IP) rights and legislation relating to patents, trade marks, designs and plant breeder's rights. We are a listed entity within the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science.

Our vision is to have a world leading IP system that builds prosperity for Australia

We will work to achieve this through delivering efficient IP rights administration. We will also work to contribute to the innovation system more broadly by using our skills and experience to advise government and Australian businesses to make the most of their IP.
