Design Registration Certificates Only Electronically

On February 23, 2016, the Brazilian National Institute of Industrial Property (INPI) informed that the industrial design registration certificates are available only in an electronic format. Issuing of paper certificates are no longer possible.

Additionally, INPI has published on its website more than 7,200 documents with respect to granted certificates issued between 2014 and 2015. Thus, INPI provides now an online system covering the whole process for industrial design protection.

The issuance of industrial design registration certificates in electronic format is regulated by INPI Resolution 159/2016, published in the Industrial Property Gazette No. 2355.
