Austrian patents, utility models, registered designs and trademarks as well as supplementary protection certificates and the Austrian parts of European patents and international trademark registrations are listed in special registers administered by the Austrian Patent Office.
To transfer an IP right to a new owner, this owner change must be entered in the respective register.
The same applies to a change in the name or address of an existing owner. Pledge rights and licenses should also be registered in the Austrian register in order to be fully valid against third parties.
Regarding the request and the signatures to be submitted, formal rules must be observed.
As Austrian patent attorneys, we are well acquainted with the formalities for requesting recordals at the Austrian registers and will advise you on the compilation of appropriate documents. We are also happy to take over the registration process at the Austrian Patent Office - on request also without taking over representation of the respective IP right.
