E-Portal for Trademark Procedures at INPI

The French National Institute of Industrial Property (INPI) announced that, as of 11 October 2022, the electronic trademark portal is the sole access point for conducting some procedures related to trademarks. These procedures include the filing, opposition, invalidity, forfeiture, and division of trademarks.

This new interface offers the following advantages:
- Easy online entries with a guided mode for occasional depositors (referral to the most frequent filing methods, information on the criteria for validating the mark)
- Follow-ups real-time procedural steps
- New filters by type of procedure (filing, opposition, nullity, forfeiture, division)
- Facilitated seizures concerning the contested mark and the earlier mark in opposition and invalidity proceedings

The new functionalities will soon extend to registrations in the register and applications for international trademarks, as well as renewals and official copies.
