Implementation of IP User Repository Completed


The Slovenian Intellectual Property Office (SIPO) is the first pilot office to complete the implementation of the European Cooperation Project ‘ECP3 IP User Repository (IPUR)’.

IPUR is a support tool developed in the framework of the EUIPO’s European Cooperation activities. It aims to help IP offices avoid duplication of records of personal data (applicants and representatives).

The tool uses artificial intelligence to identify potential personal records that might belong to the same entity, given some preliminary rules defined by the office. Based on these rules, the tool proposes these matches as clusters for the office to review. The main outcome is a clean database of users without duplicates or incomplete personal data.

From the initial 144,000 records analysed by the Slovenian office, 136,000 duplicates were identified which resulted in 21,000 clusters and 7,182 unique records.
