In line with Patents and Trade Marks and Designs, IP Australia is implementing its electronic outbound correspondence facility for Plant Breeder’s Rights (PBR) on the 1st of February.

This implementation will also include the release of the new look PBR correspondence to enhance user experience and provide clear, succinct information to our customers.

Incoming changes:

From the 2nd of February, PBR customers will have the ability to receive all PBR correspondence, including the Certificate of Grant for Plant Breeder’s Rights directly to their eServices portfolio.

Post implementation, IP Australia will begin updating the user accounts for all new correspondence received via eServices and the sender will be responded to electronically. Customers who wish to opt in to the service prior to their next submission being lodged can do so by providing their eServices username via a written request using the online form.
