Intermittent CIPC system down time
CIPC is in the process of implementing additional technical infrastructure which will be completed in the short term. This may result in customers experiencing problems when transacting/lodging documents electronically on CIPC’s website, as well as at the CIPC walk-in offices in Pretoria and Cape Town.

CIPC would like to assure customers that the problem is receiving priority attention and that customers will be updated on any developments.

CIPC apologises for any inconvenience that may be caused. Please refer to the CIPC website www.cipc.co.za for further updates relating to this matter.

Are you aware that enterprise registration does NOT give you protection to use your enterprise name as a TRADE MARK? To protect your trade mark you need to lodge a separate application for a trade mark registration. You can also protect your PATENT or DESIGN by lodging a separate application for each.
