The project of quality management system (QMS) implementation in accordance with the ISO 9001:2008 standard for the certification of patent, petty patent and trademark granting procedures has been carried out in the Intellectual Property Office by the Danish Patent and Trademark Office (DKPTO) within the IPA regional project. The project has been implemented in the period from March to November 2010.
The project comprised several phases which included definition of quality policy, introduction of organizational structure system, development of appropriate documentation, and start of system implementation. It has been completed with the evaluation performed by DKPTO experts, who created a report with further recommendations for the activities to be taken within the QMS. The goal of those activities is to fulfill criteria for the certification of abovementioned procedures, which is scheduled for mid-2011.
