Trade marks from the Austrian Patent Office and the German Patent and Trade Mark Office (DPMA) have now been added to the TMview database which provides free access to trade mark applications and registrations from a number of leading trade mark offices.
The latest expansion brings the total number of offices which have made their trade mark data available through TMview to 23, including the Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market (OHIM) and the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO), and to more than 9.1 million the trade marks accessible through it.
On a different note, the Romanian State Office for Inventions and Trademarks (OSIM) is now integrated into EuroClass. This new incorporation brings the number of Participating Offices to 29, including OHIM.

To have a grasp on how these two databases work and their functions for trade mark searches, we invite you to read the European IPR Helpdesk fact sheet on trade mark searches, recently updated in collaboration with the OHIM and available in our website library section.
