India joins Designview

Friday, January 19, 2018

As of 19 January 2018 the Office of the Controller General of Patents, Designs & Trade Marks (CGPDTM) has made its design data available to the Designview search tool.


This successful integration is the result of the EU-INDIA Intellectual Property Cooperation (IPC-EUI) project funded by the European Union and implemented by the EUIPO and the CGPDTM under the supervision of the DIPP.


With the CGPDTM on board, Designview now contains data from 63 participating offices.


With the addition of more than 30.000 designs from the CGPDTM, Designview provides information and access to almost 13.4 million designs.


Since the introduction of Designview on 19 November 2012 the tool has served more than 3.2 million searches from 161 different countries, with users from Germany, the UK and Spain among the most frequent users.
