People are becoming more aware of IP enforcement issues. To help with this, we have developed this new module to help businesses understand what to do if somebody infringes their IP.

The IP Health Check allows businesses to identify and assess the IP they own. Since its launch in 2009, there have been more than 20,000 health checks completed.

What is the IP Health Check

The IP Health Check is one of our free ‘IP for Business’ online support tools. It consists of 9 individual modules on different areas of IP:

  • Copyright
  • Trade marks
  • Designs
  • Patents
  • Confidential information
  • Licensing your IP
  • Trade marks overseas
  • Franchising
  • Enforcement

The IP Health Check provides you with a tailored confidential report based on your answers to a series of simple questions. The report includes:

  • a list of action points to help you protect and exploit your IP rights
  • guidance on how to put these into practice
  • links to useful information, websites and other resources
