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).

Philippines to use the harmonised database in TMclass

 

As of 28 July 2021, the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPHL) uses and accepts the list of terms from the harmonised database of goods and services (HDB) in TMclass.

Following IPOPHL’s decision to use HDB, there are now 17 IP offices outside the EU which use and accept terms from this database.

The addition of IPOPHL in TMclass brings the total number of participating national and regional IP offices, including ARIPO, OAPI, WIPO and EUIPO, to 85.

TMclass offers users the opportunity to search and translate goods and services to and from any of the 44 languages available.

What is the HDB?

The HDB or harmonised database is the world's largest multilingual database for goods and services. The terms it contains have been pre-approved by all EU national and regional IP offices, including the EUIPO.

Whenever a user selects a term from the HDB, they can be sure it will be accepted when their application is examined. It will also mean that the term is already translated into all other EU languages. The application can therefore be processed more smoothly.

The adoption of HDB by IPOPHL is a concrete result of the IP Key South-East Asia programme funded by the European Union and implemented by the EUIPO.
