Annual Report 2012

We have many reasons to be proud of our performance of the past year. In addition to our usual core tasks, the Benelux Office for Intellectual Property (BOIP) has realised various large-scale projects. Therein, the final quality of our services for users has been a guiding principle.

Trademark law and the European trademark landscape are subject to considerable changes. In the past year, many activities focused on international cooperation. In 2013 we continue these activities and the international and progressive nature of the BOIP will become even more visible.

Given the present political and economic context it is difficult to remain fully optimistic. In spite of this, the BOIP invests in the future and we continue fulfilling our important mission.
