How can I create a new User Area account?
When you sign up to the User Area, you are gaining access to an advanced dashboard from where you will be able to monitor your trade marks and designs, subscribe to our newsfeeds, set up watch alerts or create subprofiles.
You can easily create a new user account by clicking on the 'sign up' option located in the top right corner of your screen.
The first question you need to ask yourself when creating a user account is whether you have already made any previous applications with the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) (a trade mark application, a design application or an opposition) – if you have applied for any of our services in the past your user already exists in our user database and has a user ID number already assigned.
If you already have a user ID at the Office (click on YES to the first question), you should type your name and ID to locate yourself in our records. Once selected, you can continue and you will be requested to provide your user name for the online account. The password will be sent to you by e-mail or fax/post, depending on the option you select. The account will only be activated once you have entered the password.
If you are a new user, (click on NO to the first question), you will be requested to provide a user name and e-mail (to be used for sending the activation link), as well as some personal details. The account will only be activated once you have entered the password using the activation link sent by email at the end of the process.
