As of 14 July 2021, the General Directorate of Intellectual Property of Honduras (DIGEPIH) will be included in TMclass.
TMclass offers users the opportunity to search for and translate goods and services to and from any of the 44 languages available as well as verifying the terms’ correct classification under the Nice classification (an international classification of goods and services applied for the registration of marks).
The DIGEPIH will use and accept the list of terms from the harmonised database of goods and services (HDB) in TMclass.
Following the DIGEPIH’s decision to use the HDB there are now 16 IP offices outside the EU, which use and accept terms from this database.
The inclusion of the DIGEPIH in TMclass brings the total number of participating national and regional IP Offices, including ARIPO, OAPI, WIPO and EUIPO, to 85.
The integration of the DIGEPIH in TMclass is a concrete result of the IP Key Latin America programme directed by the European Commission and implemented by the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).
