The China Trademark Association visits EUIPO
A delegation from the China Trademark Association (CTA) visited the EUIPO from 2 to 3 April.
The CTA is the biggest trade mark users’ association in China, representing the interests of businesses, trade mark agencies, relevant organisations, experts and scholars across China. Created in 1994, it represents the Chinese trade mark community.
The first day of visit the was dedicated to the Boards of Appeal (BoA), following a visit taken by a Boards delegation to Beijing on 15 October 2018, during which the CTA and the BoA initiated a fruitful exchange on several topics of common interest.
The second day was dedicated to international cooperation, as well as the tools and practices that the EUIPO, together with the European Union Intellectual Property Network, have developed for the benefit of their joint users.
CTA and EUIPO also discussed the benefits of integrating Chinese trade mark data into TMview, the world’s largest TM searchable platform, which China is expected to join this year. The CTA delegation also received a briefing on the work of the European Observatory on Infringements of Intellectual Property Rights, particularly its studies and reports on IP.
