Intellectual Property Automated System (IPAS) Launched in Nigeria

It was a milestone achievement in the development of intellectual property in Nigeria when the Federal Government launched the first Intellectual Property Automated System, IPAS on January 28, 2014 after 100 years of manual service. The Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Olusegun Aganga who launched the IPAS noted that with the IPAS, services would not only be more efficient, quicker and cheaper, but will also ensure transparency and accountability. We look forward to improved services from the Registry.
