European Cooperation: front and back office integration in Romania
On 21 September 2020, the Romanian State Office for Inventions and Trademarks (OSIM) successfully integrated its front office and back office systems. This will allow trade marks and designs filed in the front office to be automatically available in the back office application without any need for manual intervention.
This implementation is aligned with the EUIPO’s guidelines, bringing enhanced benefits to users by reducing working times, avoiding potential data errors due to manual data handling, and improving the overall user experience. The OSIM and the EUIPO will continue to work together to further enhance both the front office and back office applications in 2020 and under the EUIPO’s Strategic Plan 2025.
This important milestone has been achieved through the collaboration of the EUIPO and OSIM under the joint cooperation framework. The EUIPO and its stakeholders are working together on eight major European Cooperation Projects, the overall aim of which is to benefit users across the EU by providing modern, state-of-the-art tools and services for EU IP offices.
