CIPC is currently experiencing technical difficulties with the associated name reservation service (manual name reservation) and it is receiving urgent attention. Therefore, until further notice, this service is not available to customers.
Important to Note:
Do not submit any Associated Name Reservations (Form CoR9.1 with proof of association with existing name) via firstname.lastname@example.org or any of the other existing electronic name reservation platforms. Applications may be rejected, and the fee payable will not be refunded by CIPC. Applications not yet processed will be rejected. These will have to be resubmitted once the electronic platform is available.
CIPC apologies for any inconvenience caused and confirms that this matter is receiving urgent attention.
