New Zealand’s trade marks are now on EUIPO’s TMview

As of 17 February 2020, IPONZ has made its trade mark data available to the European Union Intellectual Property Office’s (EUIPO) 'TMview' search tool.

With IPONZ on board, the tool now contains data from 73 participating offices.

The benefits for New Zealand trade mark owners of having their trade marks appear in international databases such as EUIPO’s TMView and WIPO’s Global Brand Database include:

  • Brand creators and trade mark searchers will be more likely to see existing NZ brands when checking new trade mark ideas.
  • Exporters will have another overseas resource to increase trust of their brands in new markets.
