The CIPC was established and launched in 2004 after the merger of the Office of Companies and Intellectual Property Enforcement (OCIPE) and the Companies and Intellectual Property Registration Office (CIPRO).
The CIPC’s role is to provide accessible registration services for business entities, intellectual property and regulated practitioners; and to maintain and disclose relevant information regarding business entities, business rescue practitioners, corporate conduct and reputation, intellectual property rights and indigenous cultural expression.

The CIPC’s role is also to help businesses to take the necessary steps to visibly, effectively and efficiently monitor and enforce compliance with the laws of the CIPC administers.
