As from February 1, 2021, there is a requirement to state an e-mail address in international application

From February 1, 2021 an e-mail address to the representative or to the applicant shall be specified in errands to WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization).

This concerns the following WIPO-forms:

  • International Application (MM2, MAA)
  • Change of ownership or transfer (MM5)
  • Separate appointment of representative (MM12)

Failure to indicate the e mail address will result in an irregularity from WIPO.

WIPO strongly encourage WIPO representatives to provide the International Bureau of WIPO with email addresses to existing International Registrations through the special page of Contact Madrid https://www3.wipo.int/contact/en/madrid/
