We are currently processing a high volume of new innovation patent filings. As a result, you may experience a delay in having your innovation patent granted. 

We are working to minimise the disruption for our customers and will assess all incoming applications as soon as possible. We thank you for your patience. 

A reminder that you will no longer be able to file for a new innovation patent after 25 August 2021. All applications received by this time will continue to be in force until they expire.
