Become an AIPPI member

Joining AIPPI means becoming part of an organisation which has been shaping IP for over 125 years.

Join AIPPI by completing the form below. Please note that a membership fee applies, and this is set by the AIPPI National or Regional Group in your country – or by the AIPPI General Secretariat if no AIPPI National or Regional Group exists in your country.

If there is a National or Regional Group in your country, your local AIPPI group will contact you with further information. According to AIPPI’s Statutes, all members of a National or Regional Group are automatically members of the international association.

If your principal professional or business activity is located in a country where no National or Regional Group of AIPPI exists, you may join as an Independent Member. In this case, the AIPPI General Secretariat in Switzerland will process your membership.

Please read the AIPPI Cookie and Privacy Policy before submitting your application.
