IP Office Identifies Duplicate User Records


On May 31, 2021, the State Patent Office of the Republic of Lithuania (VPB) was the first IP Office to implement the European Cooperation Project "IP User Repository (IPUR)", after testing an initial pilot phase of the tool in Portugal, Denmark and Slovenia.

IPUR is a support tool developed to help IP Offices identify and correct duplicate user records (personal data). The tool uses artificial intelligence (AI) to identify potential personal data records that could belong to the same entity if some preliminary criteria have been defined by the Office. Based on these criteria, the tool proposes the matches as clusters for the Office to review.

A "cleaner" database of users will help reduce the number of errors in the e-filing process and delays in the examination process, as well as improve interaction with clients.
