The Intellectual Property Laws Amendment (Productivity Commission Response Part 1 and Other Measures) Act 2018 (IP Amendment Act) moves a number of filing, formality and fee paying requirements to non-legislative instruments. The current instruments are published by IP Australia on the IP Legislation page.

As we continually undertake reviews of the non-legislative instruments to adopt more efficient processes as they become available, some instruments will be repealed or amended. To make the process transparent to our stakeholders and for tracking purposes, a history of the superseded instruments can be accessed below.
