Here you will find information on all the different services provided and on the many benefits the service brings to the user. The ADR operates under the auspices of the Boards of Appeal of the EUIPO. Find out how to initiate an ADR request and what documents parties must submit if they wish to request this service.

The ADR service offers mediation, conciliation, assisted negotiation and expert determination, which may be used in combination with one another, or separately.
