UKPO Consultation on Patent Forms

The U.K. Patent Office is undertaking a review of its statutory forms with a view to reducing the administrative burden on external users. They also want to make more forms available for electronic filing and case file management as part of the Office’s e-Business and Information Systems Strategy. For example, they have proposed merging the respective forms covering identical actions for patents, trade marks and registered designs to improve processing efficiency.

Responses are welcome from anyone interested in the intellectual property system in the UK, but especially those who have been or expect to be users of the system. Comments from anyone who regularly completes Patent Office forms would be particularly useful to us. The response deadline is Wednesday, February 1, 2006.
