Government-wide FOIA.Gov Portal:  Using the system is an alternative option for submitting FOIA requests to IPEC that allows requesters to create a request using a web-based form. However, requests may still be submitted directly to IPEC using the above contact information.

How To Submit A FOIA Request to IPEC

Please state clearly that the request is being made under FOIA. Be as specific as you can when identifying the information you are seeking, and include your name, address, and contact information to enable us to contact you with any questions. 

Submit requests electronically to or address regular mail to Freedom of Information Officer, Office of the Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator, Executive Office of the President, Washington, DC 20503. 

To protect our computer systems, IPEC reserves the right to not open attachments to emailed requests. Please include the request within the body of the email, along with such additional information that is relevant, such as information in support of a request for expedited processing, for a fee categorization, or for a fee waiver. If after receiving a request IPEC determines that it does not include sufficient information on which to grant, or deny, a request for expedited process, a fee categorization, or a fee waiver, IPEC will so inform the requester and provide the requester an opportunity to submit additional information in support of such request.
