Latest Updates to Indonesia’s Intellectual Property E-filing System

As part of its continual work to improve Indonesia’s intellectual property (IP) e-filing system, the Directorate General of Intellectual Property (DGIP) makes regular updates and upgrades to the system. In recent months, the DGIP has implemented several important changes from previously used versions that applicants should be aware of when filing IP applications.

Below is a summary of some key changes and updated requirements for applications using the IP e-filing system, grouped by IP type.


- Drawings must be in JPG format only, and only one view is allowed per page.

- Once payment for the application has been made, no refund request is available.

- Only one figure is allowed for each design view, except for reference and perspective views.


- For inventions already registered outside Indonesia through the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT), the title of the invention in the application for registration in Indonesia must match the title of the invention as registered with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).

- All bibliographic data in the national phase application must match the information from the PCT international phase as listed on WIPO’s website.

- Excess claim fees must be paid at the time of filing the patent application. Read more
