As of today, the 19 May 2021, TMview will include trade mark data made available by the China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA), taking the total number of trade marks in the search tool from 62 to over 90 million from 75 participating IP Offices.
Over 32 million Chinese trade marks are now available in the TMview information tool to any European and global IP users to search free of charge, 24/7. This achievement has been made possible thanks to the support of IP Key China, an EU-funded project that promotes intellectual property rights in China and cooperates with local authorities and is implemented and co-funded by the EUIPO.
The EUIPO is the first IP office with which the CNIPA has shared its trade mark data, demonstrating close and continued cooperation between the two offices over time.
