WIPO to Launch New Interface for Hague E-Filing

November 14, 2018

Launching on November 19, 2018, this all-new interface represents a significant change in enhancing usability, adding modern features, and simplifying the process for filing and managing international design applications online.

The new interface embodies WIPO’s goal of enhancing its services and improving your experience. Designed with both novice and experienced users in mind, the revamped E-Filing brings brand-new features and a modern user experience to help you file applications smoothly and effectively from anywhere, at any time, and on any device.

Key features

Modern, accessible design and user interface

Continuing the success of the design and user interface first introduced in WIPO’s ePCT Service, the new Hague System E-Filing is modern, accessible, and fast. The new design makes it easier to find your filed applications and drafts, communicate with WIPO, and file a new application.

Integration with new WIPO payment methods and services

With the introduction of ePay, you will have access to popular payment methods such as Paypal. You will also have access to the ePay Basket, which allows you to make multiple payments at once, and also provides a history of your payments and a list of pending payments, including those for the Hague System.

Simple, easy-to-use filing process and navigation

When you use the new interface to file an application you will only need to access one screen. From a single screen you can easily navigate through sections, switch language, contact WIPO, or send your application.

Versatile and mobile optimized

With so many of us on the go, the new interface is designed with mobile in mind. Whether you are at your desk or using your tablet or smartphone, the new interface is ready to accommodate your needs.

Notice: The old version of E-Filing will no longer be available for use from November 19, 2018.
