If you’re an innovative small to medium enterprise (SME) it is important that you’re across the changes happening to the intellectual property (IP) system, and the services we have available to help you understand, identify and protect your most valuable assets.

We understand that seeking patent protection can be complicated which is why we’ve launched some new initiatives to help you navigate the application process.

Our new SME Portal is your go-to for patent tools, resources and information – from the basics to taking your IP global. Through the SME Portal you can also access SME Fastrack, our expedited examination service if you need your patent examined quickly, and our SME Case Management Program, which connects you with a subject matter expert from IP Australia at any stage of the application process.

Check out our SME Portal today and be sure to provide us with any feedback.
