History

1980s - 1997 A first mover in modernisation

The Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPHL)’s immediate predecessor was the Bureau of Patents, Trademarks and Technology Transfer (BPTTT), created via an executive order of President Corazon C. Aquino to re-organise the Department of Trade and Industry. Through this EO, the Philippine Patent Office - a post-independence agency created by President Manuel A. Roxas -  was converted to the BPTT, and the Technology Transfer Board (an attached agency of the Department of Trade and Industry) was abolished, with its functions adopted by the BPTT.

1997 - 2004 The IP Code Onwards

In the background of these strategic moves to institutionalise intellectual property administration, the consolidation of intellectual property into legislation was unfolding as well. The Intellectual Property Code of the Philippines, Republic Act 8293, authored by the late Senator Raul S. Roco, was signed into law in June 6, 1997 and took effect on January 1, 1998.

2005 - 2009 Intellectual Property as a tool for development

In 2005,  the administration of the intellectual property system as well as the office’s function took a developmental approach, with the succession of Atty. Adrian S. Cristobal Jr. as the second Director General.

In this period, a policy/International relations unit was created to enable the agency to take the lead on domestic and international IP policy. The unit produced policy papers, studies, comments on legislation, draft bills pertaining to intellectual property rights and became the main resource of the country’s missions in Geneva and in DTI’s bilateral and multilateral trade negotiations.

2010 - 2014 Building an IP community

A resurgence in modernisation and continued enforcement campaign and greater engagement with the academic sector defined IPOPHL’s direction under the Director General  Atty. Ricardo Blancaflor.

In 2012, IPOPHL began implementation of an efficiency-enhancing system that automated the end-to-end processing of IP applications  from from filing to registration, including publications, printing of certificates and post-registration/post-granting.

This was known as the Industrial Property Automation System (IPAS) instituted in partnership with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), and revolutionised the processing of IP applications.

2015- present Forging Ahead in the global IP Community 

Modernisation of services and facilities continues to be a landmark of the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines’ services: in 2016, the array of online filing application facilities were launched to eTMFile, eIDFile and the eUMFile.

In an effort to facilitate and improve the system of classification of goods and services in trademark applications, IPOPHL joined at least 62 other countries and organisations in using TMClass in 2016. The online tool helps users to correctly classifying goods and services when filing a trade mark, and has a function that aids the user translate terms across 42 languages to check compatibility in participating IP offices. IPOPHL was already part of Asean TMClass.

In 2017, the IPOPHL’s effort in building its expertise and proficiency in patent search and examination led to the it gaining unanimous designation by the World Intellectual Property Organisation as the second International Searching Authority/International Preliminary Examination Authority (ISA/IPEA) in Asean. By 2019, it hopes to begin operating as an ISA/IPEA and become the ISA/IPEA of choice of applicants in the region.
