The TIPONet portal, which includes TIPO's e-filing system, online file inspection, gazette search and other functions, was first launched in 2008. According to a news item (in Chinese) published by the Taiwan Patent Office (TIPO) on 31 January 2012, the new portal is now more user-friendly and includes new functionalities such as customisation of shortcuts by the user. The new portal has now also been optimised for browsers other than the Internet Explorer, such as Firefox or Chrome.
Access to the old portal will still remain active for a transitional period. Please note that TIPONet is available in Chinese language only.
