On 10 June, the Estonian Patent Office introduces the Madrid eFiling portal, which has been tested for half a year in cooperation with WIPO.

Through the portal, you can submit an international e-application under the Madrid Protocol, provided that you already have an Estonian national application or registration for the same trade mark. The application is submitted to the Estonian Patent Office, which will forward it to the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) after the examination and, if necessary, correction of the application.

If an international application is filed, fees must be paid to WIPO (see Fee Calculator) and to the Estonian Patent Office (see trade mark fees).

The portal is also used in the intellectual property offices of Benelux, Georgia, Austria and Lithuania.
