IPReg ABS (alternative business structures) – Licensing Consultation

17 September 2012

The IP Federation has submitted a response to the consultation on becoming a licensing authority for alternative business structures (ABS) with a closing date of 17 September 2012. 

The IP Federation is looking for confirmation that IPReg is not intending to include companies employing in-house attorneys within the ABS regulation, and hopes to be included in any consultation on the ABS regula­tion. We are offering to review the draft regulation to ensure in-house IP departments are not inadvertently included in the regulation.
