IP Australia had sought public comment on proposed implementation of the Government’s response to the Productivity Commission’s 2016 inquiry on Australia’s IP arrangements. The stakeholder consultation on the proposed reforms closed on 17 November 2017. We have considered all the 18 non-confidential submissions received, and thank everyone who provided submissions on the proposals. Our proposed response to this consultation detailing further changes, other outcomes and reasoning is published on the IP Australia website.
