New Resource on the WIPO Website: WIPO Country Profiles

Profiles of over 190 countries are now available on the WIPO website from a single user-friendly source at:


The country profile pages enable quick and easy access to information which is taken from multiple WIPO databases. As well as giving information on the use of the PCT in a particular country (by Office of origin of the application and by designated Office), they include information on WIPO treaty membership and national IP laws, on the use of the Madrid and Hague Systems, on IP filing and domain name dispute statistics, as well as on technical assistance activities. They also provide access, by country, to collections of IP success stories and videos, to national awareness-raising campaigns, and to the latest country-tagged photos in WIPO’s Flickr sets.
