The Dominican Republic and Saint Kitts and Nevis join TMclass
As of 27 July 2020, the National Industrial Property Office of the Dominican Republic (ONAPI) and the Intellectual Property Office of Saint Kitts and Nevis (IPOSKN) are part of TMclass.
ONAPI will use and accept the list of terms from the harmonised database of goods and services (HDB) in TMclass and IPOSKN will join the tool with a list of common terms between HDB and WIPO’s Madrid Goods and Services (MGS).
Following ONAPI’s decision to use HDB there are now 10 non-EU IP offices in TMclass, which use and accept terms from this harmonised database.
The last addition of ONAPI and IPOSKN in TMclass brings the total number of participating national and regional IP Offices, including ARIPO, OAPI, WIPO and EUIPO, to 80.
TMclass offers users the opportunity to search and translate goods and services to and from any of the 44 languages available.
The adoption of HDB by ONAPI and the decision by IPOSKN to join TMclass with the common list of terms between HDB and MGS are concrete results of the CARIFORUM Intellectual Property and Innovation Project funded under the 11th European Development Fund and implemented by the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).
