Who is Cipro?

This company is a result of the merger of two former directorates of the dti, SACRO – South African Companies Registration Office and SAPTO – South African Patents & Trade Marks Office, from 1 March 2002 into a single efficient and customer driven Business Agency called CIPRO.

This website is a new delivery channel that will be used to avail, to all our customers and stakeholders, new automated and electronic services as per our strategic imperatives. It will also be used as an easy point of entry by our customers and stakeholders who will get the information they need as and when they need it, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. It gives a new dimension to the way our customers and stakeholders will do business with our office.

The website contains user-friendly directives as well as up-to-date information that will keep our customers and stakeholders informed about the latest developments at this office.

We hope you will enjoy your visit to our new website; to get assistance from our well- trained team call our Customer Contact Centre at 0861 843 384 for national callers and +27 (12) 394 9500 for international callers.
