New online services in the Benelux
The Benelux Office for Intellectual Property (BOIP), with the support of the EUIPO’s European Cooperation Service, has improved the services it provides to trade mark and design applicants through the launch of new online services.
The BOIP platform now provides four additional online services: Change of Representative and Transfer of Rights for trade marks and for designs, which will help modernise IP-related operations in the Benelux. These new digital services, available since 12 May 2020, complement BOIP’s existing services (Change of Name, Change of Address, Change of Name and Address, Renewal Trade Mark, Renewal Design, Opposition and e-Filing Trade Mark/Design).
The new BOIP services are the result of the work carried out by the EUIPO and its partners under the European Cooperation Projects (ECP1). The release marks another successful implementation of the Software Package Front Office tools developed by the EUIPO and offered to the national and regional intellectual property offices of the EU.
The European Cooperation Projects support the intellectual property offices in the European Union Intellectual Property Network (EUIPN) to develop more efficient, reliable and user-friendly tools and services for trade marks and designs.
