Responding to trade mark examination letters

As part of our ongoing work to improve our digital services, we are implementing changes to two of our trade mark services.

Intellectual Property Office

The services affected are

  • response to trade mark examination letter
  • response to Right Start trade mark examination letter

The changes are only to improve the appearance of these services.

They will take effect on 3 November 2016.

Please note

If you have a draft reply saved in progress (saved for later), then you must submit it by 2 November 2016. Following this date, any draft replies saved on the current version of either service, will no longer be available.

The method for accessing these services will remain the same (via the examination letter).

From 03 November 2016, the first screen of the service will resemble one of the following;
