CIPO is Modernizing its Practice Manuals

CIPO is taking steps to modernize the Manual of Patent Office Practice (MOPOP), the Trademarks Examination Manual (TEM) and Industrial Design Office Practice Manual using the Qweri publishing platform.  The new format will ensure that CIPO can update these manuals in a timely manner, and also provides new functionality such as links to websites containing relevant information or services (e.g. online filing services).

Beta versions of the manuals are currently available online here, and CIPO is seeking feedback on these beta versions before moving ahead with an official launch.  Feedback on the modernized practice manuals can be provided here.
