What are journals?
We publish an official journal for trade marks, patents, design rights and plant breeder's rights.
Each journal contains details of an IP right application at the different stages of the registration and grant process, including:
- Acceptance date
- Grant date
- Amendments made
- Notification of when it's open to public inspection
This can be helpful if you need to provide evidence of the date something was published.
