Intellectual property (IP) professionals with both an active online services account and an IP Australia attorney code will be able to access and download a number of trade mark notices from IP Australia in PDF format.
All users of our online services not represented by an IP professional with an IP Australia attorney code will receive correspondence electronically, but only for new trade mark applications submitted using our online services from 16 March 2015 onwards. We are currently in the process of merging trade mark applications lodged via our online services prior to 16 March 2015 to allow electronic correspondence to be enabled for older trade mark applications.
Online services correspondence overview
When correspondence is available to view, an email will be sent to your registered email address. You will receive one notification email for any new correspondence that is delivered on that day to your email address.
To access the correspondence item, follow the link within the email to log in to our online services or simply log in through the IP Australia website. Correspondence can be accessed through the ‘eServices Correspondence’ link in the My Portfolio section of your online services homepage.
Correspondence will be viewable within online services and we strongly advise you to download and save a copy of the correspondence for your own records. Our online services correspondence facility will display the electronic trade mark notice for six months or until a 2500 item limit has been reached (whichever happens earlier).
Detailed information is available in the correspondence user guide.
Developing an online services correspondence capability for the remaining IP right types is on our roadmap and we will keep you informed when further functionality will become available.
