Launch of electronic system for recordal of agreements
On July 7, 2015, the Brazilian Institute of Industrial Property (INPI) launched the Electronic Application System e-Contracts (e-Contratos). Through this new online system, users can request services or perform procedural actions regarding the registration of licensing, technology transfer and franchise agreements.
Access to the system is subject to prior user registration in the e-INPI portal.
For more information on how to access the system, procedures for preparation and submission of electronic forms, and monitoring of the process, please read the User Guide of Electronic Forms for Technology Contracts(only a Portuguese version available).
