The Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS) is a statutory board under the Ministry of Law. IPOS is the lead government agency that advises on and administers intellectual property (IP) laws, promotes IP awareness and provides the infrastructure to facilitate the development of IP in Singapore. With IP fast becoming a critical resource in today’s new economy, IPOS’s vision is to be a Global IP Hub in Asia.
Singapore has a Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) legislative and administrative regime that is fully compliant with international Intellectual Property Rights (IPR). This means that we are compliant with, and a signatory to, the following international conventions:
As IP regulator and policy advisor, we are committed to maintaining a robust and pro-business IP regime for the protection and commercial exploitation of IP. On the policy front, we work with economic agencies and the IP business community to formulate and review IP policies and practices. As a promoter for IP, we have developed programmes that are accessible to the general public and businesses to raise awareness, build capabilities and provide opportunities for IP amongst the various target audience.
