Finland joins DesignClass
The integration was carried out on 30 March 2020 with the support of the EUIPO’s European Cooperation Projects (ECP1) and in close collaboration with the PRH office.
With this latest addition, there are 35 IP offices in the database, including all national and regional intellectual property offices in the EU. As a result, product indications with Finnish translations are now available to all users through the DesignClass tool.
The HDBPI is constantly updated so it evolves with the market and user needs. In addition to Locarno classification, the HDBPI is enriched with product indications from Eurolocarno and from national and regional IP offices of the EU.
DesignClass allows users to easily navigate the harmonised database of product indications to search for a specific translated term in 27 languages, now including all official languages of the EU.
The integration of the Finnish Patent and Registration Office into the ‘Harmonisation community’ is another step forward in this common subproject. The EUIPO and its stakeholders are currently collaborating on five major European Cooperation Projects. The projects aim to benefit users across the EU by providing modern, state-of-the-art tools and services for intellectual property offices.
