New E-Service DPMAdirektPro Introduced

The German Patent and Trade Mark Office (DPMA) has launched DPMAdirektPro on January 1, 2018, after successful trial operations. The new e-service enables the Office to electronically transmit office actions and electronically deliver decisions. In return, customers can electronically send a return confirmation of receipt to the DPMA. With this service, the DPMA and its customers can now manage the case files completely electronically.

Previous users of DPMAdirekt are requested to install the current software version of DPMAdirektPro. Customers need to register to participate in the electronic transmittal of documents. They will then receive a PIN to activate the additional functions of the software. Test users do not need to take any further action but can continue to work with the system as before.

All customers may use the service not only for new applications but also for existing case files by making a request with the DPMA. The traditional paper route of transmittal for individual or all case files is still available.
