The purpose of the WIPO Standards Administration Database – WIPOSTAD – is to streamline the support for the multilingual revision and publication of WIPO Standards in the field of industrial property information and documentation, as well as of the compilation of practices regarding patents, trademarks, and industrial designs by industrial property offices (IPOs).
Once its development is completed, WIPOSTAD will contain:
Within the framework of different surveys on IPOs practices, WIPOSTAD will also include the Annual Technical Reports (ATRs) on patent, trademark and industrial design information activities, as well as specific surveys on the use of WIPO Standards by IPOs.
The WIPO Standards Administration Database – WIPOSTAD – has been deployed on the WIPO website for test purposes. At present, the WIPOSTAD provides information related to Part 3 (WIPO Standards in the field of industrial property information and documentation) and Part 8.1 (Glossary) of the WIPO Handbook on Industrial Property Information and Documentation. It is planned to add Part 7 (Examples and industrial property practices) in the near future. Please keep in mind that the information provided may not be complete or up-to-date.
You are kindly invited to view, explore and make use of the different features of WIPOSTAD. Should you have any comments, your feedback would be highly appreciated so please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Through consulting the said Web pages you will also find access to the glossary of terms concerning industrial property information and documentation (Part 8.1).
