The Hearings and Mediation Department (HMD) helps to find resolution for disputes concerning the registration of trade marks, patents, registered designs and plant varieties protection. The following diagram shows the possible routes that an intellectual property dispute (IP dispute) may take. Click here to see an enlarged diagram or to print.
The proceedings in HMD are heard by our Principal Assistant Registrars, Assistant Registrars and IP Adjudicators. IP Adjudicators are appointed from outside IPOS to hear our IP disputes.
