Industrial Property Office

Denmark, Austria, Mexico, Morocco, Norway and the Russia Federation join Designview


As of 08 December 2014, the Danish Patent and Trademark Office (DKPTO), the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (IMPI), the Moroccan Industrial and Commercial Property Office (OMPIC), the Norwegian Industrial Property Office (NIPO) and the Federal Service for Intellectual Property of Russia (Rospatent), and as of 09 December 2014, the Austrian Patent Office (ÖPA) have made their design data available to the Designview search tool.

The integration of DKPTO and ÖPA is a concrete result of the Cooperation Fund programme managed by OHIM in collaboration with its European partners.

The incorporations of IMPI, OMPIC, NIPO and Rospatent are due to the efforts of the International Cooperation programme managed by OHIM in collaboration with its international partners. At the same time these four offices mark the integrations of the first non-EU offices in Designview.

With DKPTO, ÖPA, IMPI, OMPIC, NIPO and Rospatent on-board, there are now 24 participating offices in Designview. And with the addition of about 27.000 Danish designs, more than 70.000 Austrian designs, nearly 50.000 Moroccan designs, more than 27.000 Mexican designs, almost 26.000 Norwegian designs and more than 55.000 Russian designs, Designview now provides information and access to almost 2,7 million designs in total.

Since the introduction of Designview on 19 November 2012, the tool has served nearly 783.000 searches from 135 different countries, with users from Spain, Germany and the UK among the most frequent visitors.
