Goodbye old friend

The IPO website has seen many changes since it first launched in 1997, but will close for the final time on 6 October 2014. However, we don’t consider this a sad time (although accept many will!), we see it as a new beginning.

We understand the importance of our website, so have worked hard to ensure our content has been improved, whilst losing none of our valued services.

To help our customers with the move, we’ve produced a short video to outline the main changes.

Helpful links and tips

  1. From the 6 October 2014 our new web address will be: https://www.gov.uk/ipo.
  2. Link to IPO content on The National Archives.
  3. Bookmark your most used pages – our redirects will take you to the same content on GOV.UK.

Practitioner event: 2 October 2014

In addition to our video, we will be holding 30 minute awareness sessions to demonstrate the new website and its key features. Our Transition Team will also be on hand to answer any questions you have.

The event will be held at 88 Kingsway, London WC2B 6AA on Thursday 2 October. We will run 4 sessions at 10am, 11:30am, 1.30pm and 3pm.

To register your interest in attending, please email david.barker@ipo.gov.uk stating your preferred session time. Ideally, please include the number of people you expect to attend from your organisation.

If you have any questions or feedback, please post them on this blog we’ll do our best to respond in good time.
