IP Australia will soon commence consultation on how Indigenous Knowledge is protected, used and managed. Our aim is to identify policy options that relate to the responsibilities of IP Australia and help to promote the cultural integrity and economic potential of Indigenous Knowledge.

This consultation process follows the publication of Indigenous Knowledge: Issues for protection and management, a paper produced by Indigenous IP firm Terri Janke and Company for IP Australia and the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science.

Have your say

Our consultation paper, online survey and dates for roundtable consultation sessions will be published soon. Please let us know if you would like to be notified by sending an email to
