To file South African trademarks, we use the GlobalIPCo Trademark Management System.

By automating filing and prosecution of our trademarks, we are able to reduce admin overhead costs and offer the most efficient South African trademark filing service available.

The GlobalIPCo Trademark Management System is fully integrated with the CIPC filings system, immediately lodging trademark applications filed through the system.

Why Choose the GlobalIPCo Trademark Management System

The South African version of the GlobalIPCo Trademark Management System has been developed by a software developer that is also a registered South African patent attorney, assisted by a registered South African trademark attorney. The development team ensured that the trademark management system caters for all intricacies of South African trademark law.

Reminders / Communications

The GlobalIPCo Trademark Management System includes a library of more than 300 template emails that can be selected to communicate reminders, alerts and reports to the user and clients. Additional emails may be added to tailor communications, as required by the user.

Filing with the Trademarks Office
