Certificates for the trans-Tasman patent attorney regime

Certificates for the trans-Tasman patent attorney regime are to be issued to registered individual patent attorneys and incorporated patent attorneys in September 2017 once the 2017-2018 registration period is complete.

These certificates will clearly state that the registered patent attorney can practise in Australia and New Zealand. Please note:

  • That these certificates are only for patent attorneys and that there are no changes to the certificates issued to attorneys who are registered as trade marks attorneys.
  • Patent attorneys registered since 24 February 2017 have already been issued with a certificate under this regime and do not require a further certificate
