Ukrainian IPO Reorganizes and Transitions to UKRNOIPI, Online Filing System Re-Launched

Nov 30 2022 - 14:51

As part of the ongoing institutional reform of the Ukrainian intellectual property system, the Ukrainian Intellectual Property Institute (Ukrpatent) functions have been transferred to the Ukrainian National Office of Intellectual Property and Innovations (UKRNOIPI).

In its recent announcement, the Ukrpatent informed about the entry into force of the ordinance of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, dated October 28, 2022, No. 943-r “Some issues of the National Intellectual Property Authority” under which the UKRNOIPI is designated as an entity absorbing the functions of the Ukrpatent.

When the ordinance entered into force on November 8, the transition process was still ongoing. Only paper filings were accepted, while there was a short delay in re-launching the e-filing system. Online filing was re-launched on November 28, so no further filing delays are expected.
