Readers of the OHIM's newsletter Alicante News may have already noticed that there is a new CTM e-filing system on its way. The IPKat has today received the following news from the OHIM concerning the planned new CTM e-filing system, which could be of interest to many of our readers. The new system will already be introduced on 2 February 2009, announces the OHIM:
"The new CTM e-filing system will be officially launched on Monday 2 February. The system, developed as a result of user feedback, has been designed to be both quicker and simpler to use. It incorporates important features requested by users such as the ability to save and restore draft CTM applications. There is also a faster submission process with immediate confirmation including the CTM application number and the generation of a receipt that you can print or save.
Automatic error checking helps ensure that users put in the correct data, and there are improved facilities to help with the introduction of goods and services. More information will be available shortly on a special CTM e-filing web page, and video "How-to" guides introducing the system step by step, are available for immediate viewing. Keep watching the OHIM website news service for further updates over the next few days.
