Alpha and Beta products
In the spirit of continuous improvement we have recently commenced a large program of work which will replace the current B2B service with a modern solution based on best practice. Over the next 2-3 years we will be developing new solutions which will improve the quality of digital services and make service integration easier for end users. This program will also consider replacing the current eServices platform.
The first deliverables we’re committed to are a new way to renew patents (later this year) and the program road-map for the remaining transactions.
So what do we want from you? By helping us understand your needs you will help us build APIs and channels which meet them. Actively involving system users and system builders throughout this journey will ensure we have the widest possible understanding of these needs.

Australian Design Search
We are building the new Australian Design Search to replace the current Australian Designs Data Searching (ADDS) system.
We want the development of the Australian Design Search to be collaborative, so please tell us what you think.
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 Policy-Register@ipaustralia.gov.au, 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.
