Cape Verde

The cape-verdian system of Intellectual Property is still in its development stages.

Up till 2010 it has been managed by Industry and Energy Ministry, at which point the Cape Verde Intellectual Property Office was created, and started its operations in 2011.

Despite the still not automatized operation proceedures of the Cape Verde Office, the relation we maintain with associated firms in this jurisdiction allows us to provide effective responses to requests that reach us.
