Priority certificates and certified copies

You can order priority documents and certified copies from the Norwegian Industrial Property Office (NIPO).

A priority document is a copy of the first documents filed with your application. If you are applying abroad, and wish to claim priority from your previous Norwegian application, you need to order a priority document from NIPO. 

A certified copy is a copy of trademark and design applications or rights contained in our register. We will send you the document electronically with a stamp and signature of the Director of the NIPO.

Priority documents

Ordering and payment via Altinn

Use the form in the internet portal Altinn to order and pay for priority documents of design, trademark and patent applications. If you do not have a Norwegian ID number you can find the form on this page.

You must pay NOK 300 for each document with Visa, MasterCard or BankAxess when you place your order.

We normally process orders submitted with this form within 5 business days of receipt.

Please note that we make priority documents available in the WIPO Digital Access Service (DAS). More information in the section "Your certified copies will be sent electronically" on this page.

Important: Some countries have specific requirements, and require a paper version: Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Iran, China, Japan and Russia. It is therefore important that you specify in which country you are applying.

Alternative way to order

You can also order by sending an e-mail to: post@patentstyret.no. Transfer NOK 300 for each document at the same time into NIPO's bank account with BIC/SWIFT: DNBANOKKXXX and IBAN: NO8282760100192. We will not send an invoice for this amount.

We process orders submitted by e-mail within 10 working days after we have received your payment.

Access to digital priority documents

Your priority documents will be available in WIPO Digital Access Service (WIPO DAS) which is an international electronic system that allows the secure exchange of priority documents and similar documents between the IP offices participating in the system.

WIPO will automatically send an access code to the email address you provide when ordering. Remember that you need to share this code with the IP Office in the country in which you wish to file priority.

You can find information about how to follow your cases at WIPO Digital Access Service. 

If the country in which you are applying is not a member of WIPO DAS, and you are registered as an Altinn customer with us, we will send the documents via Altinn. Please note that most countries accept either a digital version or a version that you yourself have printed.

English translation of trademark classes and design products:
Classes for trademarks and and collective marks, and product specification for designs are in Norwegian. If you need an English version, send us a translation with your order and we will confirm that the translation is correct.

To find the correct English trademark classes, we recommend that you use the Product Selector. This tool can be used to translate selected terms from Norwegian to English and vice versa. You choose the goods and services in the Product Selector and click save/translate. The Norwegian text will then be translated into English.
