Managing intellectual property rights in Switzerland by automating core processes.

The Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property has its headquarters in Bern. It is the federal agency for matters concerning intellectual property in Switzerland. It was founded in 1888. It received its present status as an organization incorporated under public law on 1 January 1996. Its primary task is to be the point of contact for customers regarding industrial protective rights (trademarks, patents and designs) in Switzerland and, to some extent, for corresponding international applications. It examines the Swiss national filing applications and grants industrial property rights and administers them.
