IP network

Cooperation is a mandate and a mission at the EUIPO.

The IP world is ever more interlinked and interconnected, so to help our customers and to strengthen the global IP framework, we cooperate and collaborate with partners both in the EU and internationally.

 

Our network is built through European cooperation in the area of tools and services, and at international level throughout the world.

 

Our IP network encompasses our European partners in the European Union Intellectual Property Network (EUIPN); the national and regional intellectual property offices of the EU. Together, we build advanced tools and services for our customers, and we develop and implement common practices.

At international level, we implement a set of EU-funded projects for the European Commission in China, South-East Asia (the IPKey South-East Asia and the Arise+IPR projects), Latin America, the Caribbean, Georgia and Africa.

We also cooperate bilaterally with other countries and regions around the world, as well as with international forums like TM5 and ID5.

Our Institutional Relations function handles all interactions between our major partners: EU institutions; national and regional IP offices of the Member States of the EU; and user associations. It is here that the Secretariat of the Management Board and Budget Committee, our governing bodies, is based. The Institutional Relations function also handles the Liaison Meetings, and is in charge of the two-way information flow between the EUIPO and its stakeholders through a number of bilateral and ad-hoc events.

Through the European Observatory on Infringements of Intellectual Property Rights, transferred to the EUIPO in 2012 under Regulation (EU) No 386/2012, the Office coordinates a number of pan-European networks, including the IP in Education Network, the European Intellectual Property Prosecutors’ Network and the Judges’ Network. Cooperation is also carried out with EU agencies and international bodies like Europol, Eurojust, CEPOL, the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF), the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI), the European Patent Office (EPO) and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

eRegister goes live

 

One year after the launch of its beta version, the first official eRegister is now live. eRegister allows access to historical records of EU trade marks and registered Community designs and it increases their traceability by allowing users to see what information has been changed, when it was changed and why it was changed.

eRegister has been launched following Decision No EX‑21‑4 of the Executive Director of the Office of 30 March 2021 and is the result of months of testing and user feedback.

The tool, which is embedded as a function of eSearch plus, seeks to improve the traceability of IP rights by providing the information that defines their nature and extent of protection in chronological order. With it, the EUIPO is working to create an effective and secure digital environment for those looking for up-to-date and comprehensive information about IP rights.

What can I do with eRegister?

With eRegister it is much easier to understand the changes an IP right has gone through during its lifetime, such as the creation, modification and expiry of licences. Likewise, IP rights whose ownership has been transferred many times; it is now much simpler to determine the previous owners at any specific point in time.

In addition, the record of any given IP right, including its history, can be downloaded free of charge as a certified copy. Records downloaded from eRegister are deemed to be authentic extracts from the EUTM and RCD Registers, and can be verified online.

How can I access eRegister?

eRegister can be accessed via the EUIPO’s search tool eSearch plus. Users will first need to search for a particular trade mark or design and then click on the eRegister button located towards the top right-hand corner of their screens.
