The new IP Toolkit is designed to be more accessible, interactive and user-friendly. The content has been streamlined, with a stronger focus on IP matters and greater integration of the tools.

A beta release of the new IP Toolkit is now available for public consultation and we would encourage you to provide feedback by 31 August 2017. Alternatively, you can email

IP Folio

OpenGov recently recognised IP Australia’s Portfolio View for Patents and Trade Marks, an initiative designed to assist self-filers and small to medium-sized enterprises by displaying all intellectual property (IP) rights associated with the user in one simple and easy-to- use location. The new capability strengthens IP Australia’s digital offering for customers and can be accessed from a customers’ eServices account in one click.

As a result of Portfolio View’s success and strong customer feedback, IP Australia is pleased to announce the development of our first mobile app, IP Folio.

Policy Register

To enhance transparency and public engagement in policy making, IP Australia has published a list of issues that we are considering or working on for policy action or legislative amendment. The publication of this list, known as the Policy Register, is a new initiative by IP Australia, consistent with the Australian Government’s first Open Government National Action Plan.

A beta release of the Policy Register is now available and we would encourage you to provide feedback. You can email, or use the online feedback forms in the Policy Register. The beta release trial period will run until 16 March 2018, after which we will review the register’s functionality and appearance in response to any issues raised.
