IP Statistics Data Collection

Below are the WIPO Industrial Property Statistics data collection questionnaires for calendar year 2012.  These questionnaires contain instructions, however, more information on completing them is available in the detailed Explanatory Notes . Please complete and return all questionnaires that apply to your office by June 30, 2013 We would like to point out that these questionnaires have been slightly revised compared to those in previous years.

With regard to trademarks, some offices have a single-class application system in which one application must be filed for each class specified. Other offices, however, have a multiple class system that enables applicants to file an application in which one or more classes can be specified. In order to improve international comparability between offices having either single-class or multiple class filing, we  kindly request that special attention be given to completing the Class data in the trademark questionnaires.
Concerning the industrial design questionnaires, we ask offices that permit an application or registration to contain muliple designs to specify the number of designs contained in applications and registrations so we may better compare application and registration activity of these offices with those that require the filing of a separate application per design.
There are two options for preparing and submitting data as follows:

1. Submission of data in spreadsheet format (complete set of 25 spreadsheet tables contained in a zip file)

A complete set of spreadsheet tables (Patents, Utility Models, Trademarks,  Industrial Designs and Plant Varieties) can be downloaded for completion in one click  [ZIP 2012]
