We have scheduled system maintenance windows that we use to maintain and upgrade our online services and business IT systems.

These maintenance windows may impact on our online services.

Note that during scheduled or unscheduled maintenance, we cannot guarantee the integrity of any information submitted or retrieved during these scheduled maintenance windows, and customers accessing our online services during this time do so at their own risk.

The Australian Trade Mark Search is not impacted during periods of maintenance and is still available when other systems are down. Please note that this excludes history and opposition details.
