Whether you are a local company seeking a global IP partner to internationalise your business, or a foreign company planning to leverage on Singapore’s IP hub status for expansion into the region and beyond, IPOS is here for you. With our world-class patent search and examination (S&E) capability, International Searching Authority (ISA) and International Preliminary Examining Authority (IPEA) status, as well as our strong collaboration with an extensive network of IP offices worldwide, access to overseas markets has never been easier.
Filing is a simple process. Applications for a patent, trade mark or design can be made either via eFiling on IPOS’ website or manually. For plant varieties protection application, it can only be filed manually.
As long as an applicant is a resident or national of Singapore, the applicant can also file international applications through IPOS. This is because Singapore is a contracting state of the PCT, the Madrid Protocol and the Geneva (1999) Act of the Hague Agreement.
Interested applicants can visit IPOS during our operating hours to file or register for IP protection or make use of our online services:
