Indonesia's automation program for its IP office continues. The adoption of WIPO's IPAS software is going ahead. IPAS is designed for smaller IP offices to help the automation of trademark, designs and patent processes. WIPO also provides an e-filing software system for small to medium sized IP offices and Indonesia has been selected to be the test offices for e-filing for trademarks, designs and patents.
Elsewhere in S.E. Asia, the WIPO CASE system is being adopted. CASE is a platform to provide search and examination data for patent offices to share. Singapore, Malaysia and Vietnam are already using it and WIPO hopes to provide the system to all ASEAN offices in future.
