  • How to read or understand an infringement notice

    Each infringement notice has a unique notice number.

    You must use it when paying the fee and in all communication about your notice. When you receive an infringement notice, there are a few sections to note as shown below.

    An infringement notice number starts with one or two letters and is followed by seven numbers sometimes starting with zero.
