National Sections

In countries where there are sufficient numbers of FICPI members, but no suitable national IP association eligible to join FICPI, the FICPI members are represented by a national section.  There are significant advantages associated with a national section, including EXCO representation and reduced membership fees.

Members of FICPI in countries with a national section are generally admitted by the Bureau or EXCO, but some countries (Austria, Brazil, Ireland, Netherlands, New Zealand, South Korea and the United States of America) have been granted the power to admit their own members.*

FICPI is working through its Membership and Contact Commissions to develop new national sections in countries and regions where there are sufficient numbers of individual members from a representative number of different firms.  At present, FICPI’s membership in Poland is working towards admission of the Polish group as a new section.

* In some countries this is subject to ratification by the EXCO.
