GlobalIPCo Patent Management System for Chinese applicants

About GlobalIPCo

GlobalIPCo has developed a system that files and manages prosecution of South African patents. The system is integrated with the South African Patent Office’s system to enable users to:

  • file South African patents (designs and trademarks);
  • late-lodge documents;
  • request expedited acceptance / accelerated grant;
  • obtain acceptance within 1 month (typically within 2 weeks) of filing;
  • arrange publication in the South African Patent Journal (or withdraw and delay acceptance);
  • prepare the patent document for issuance; and
  • courier the registration certificate within 3 months of filing,


Automating the entire process enables GlobalIPCo to register South African patents for a fraction of the price charged by traditional firms.

Why choose GlobalIPCo

Apart from being the first system to reduce the time to courier a South African patent from 12-14 months to 3 months, the GlobalIPCo system also reduces South African patent costs by up to 80% (when compared to the price charged by traditional South African patent law firms).
