You can get copies of documents if you need to prove who owns or has applied for a UK patent, trade mark or design registration.
There are 2 types of copy – certified and uncertified.
This is an official document, also called a Certificate of the Registrar.
You need a certified copy to:
- register a piece of intellectual property (IP) outside the UK
- prove legal ownership of intellectual property, such as in a court case
An uncertified copy is a photocopy or digital copy of the details on the register. You can use this for research or personal use.
