If you have any questions or if you would like to know more, please do not hesitate to contact Director of DKPTO's Policy and Legal Affairs Department:

DKPTO is the official representative of Denmark acting on behalf of the Danish government in the various IP forums. 

DKPTO's Policy and Legal Affairs Department is responsible for developing Denmark's IP policy on:

  • Patents
  • Utility models
  • Trade marks
  • Designs

DKPTO's role in Danish IP Policy is illustrated in the following
organizational diagram.

We are mandated to negotiate and make decisions in all matters related to these types of IP rights on behalf of the Danish government. This makes us Denmark's key player in IP policy making. 

At the Policy and Legal Affairs Departement we work hard on improving the international IP systems through our active participation in the following forums:

  • World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)
  • European Patent Office (EPO)
  • European Communities (EU)
  • Office for Harmonization of the Internal Market (OHIM)
  • World Trade Organization (WTO)
  • B+ Working Group
  • Nordic meetings
  • Nordic Patent Institute (NPI)

We work with our colleagues in The Danish Ministry of Business and Growth, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, the Prime Minister's Office and external stakeholders on providing policy advice to the Danish ministers.
