Madrid Application Assistant online service
New Madrid System Online Service Makes Filing International Applications Easier for Users
WHAT IS THE MADRID APPLICATION ASSISTANT?
The Madrid Application Assistant is an electronic version of the official MM2 form that you must use to file an international application under the Madrid System.
The Madrid Application Assistant records all the information required to complete an international application in an intuitive and linear manner. Once completed, the international application will be made available in a PDF format ready for you to submit to the Office of origin for certification.
WHY USE THE MADRID APPLICATION ASSISTANT?
Information required for your international application can be imported directly from the Office of origin’s national/regional trademarks database. This not only saves time and effort but also reduces the risk of irregularities, thus making the process of filing an international application more efficient and accurate.
WIPO recommends using the Madrid Application Assistant to complete international applications where online filing is not made available by the Office of origin.
The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) has launched the Madrid Application Assistant, which automatically records all the information required to complete an international application.
The Madrid Application Assistant is the latest improvement to the service level of the Madrid Registry as part of WIPO’s drive to enhance the creation and management of trademark rights under the Madrid System.
The Madrid Application Assistant helps users to generate high-quality application files. Through the data import from the Office of origin’s national/regional trademarks database, the application is automatically pre-populated with the relevant information for a Madrid international application – from contact details to a full list of goods and services. Built-in features also include the automatic verification of the classification of the list of goods and services, as well as its translation. This reduces user effort while also lessening the risk of irregularities, thus making the process of filing an international application more efficient and accurate.
