The National Intellectual Property Office (DINAPI), in Resolution No. 01/2017 of February 28, 2017, established that all trademark agents must file trademark registration applications electronically through DINAPI's Web Services System, on e-forms approved by DINAPI.

The resolution also establishes that all notices of trademark filing processes shall be made through the DINAPI Web Services System, directly to the e-mail address indicated by each duly registered trademark agent.

Since 2016 requests for trademark renewals are exclusively being processed electronically, using e-forms provided by DINAPI.

Implementation of electronic processes is part of DINAPI's Strategic Plan, in line with WIPO and PROSUR guidelines, for more efficient organization of the institution.
