Corresponding with BOIP. This is the best way to do it.

Below we set out the best way for you to correspond with us and how to share documents.

Correspondence regarding trademarks, designs, oppositions and modifications  

You receive all correspondence through your My BOIP Message box regarding the trademarks, designs, oppositions and modifications you file. If you wish to reply to that correspondence, you may also do that through your My BOIP Message box. 

Replying to correspondence through My BOIP Message box 

  • You need to reply to correspondence if you see a deadline for response in the far right-hand column. 
  • Click in the row to open the message that needs to be answered. 
  • Send your answer by clicking on the ‘Reply’ button.  
  • Add your answer in the form of a text message or a file (PDF of JPG).

If you want to reply to a message that does not have a deadline for response, use the ‘Send reaction' button.
