AGEPI joined the DesignView Search Tool

11/20/2017

Starting with November 20, 2017, the State Agency on Intellectual Property of the Republic of Moldova (AGEPI) joined the Designview search tool, provided by the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).

Thus, AGEPI has made its industrial design data contained in the national registers of the Office available to the DesignView search tool.

Designview is an online consultation tool allowing any Internet user to search, free of charge, the industrial designs of all participating offices, including the EUIPO and national offices. It is a multilingual and easy-to-use tool, and gives access to industrial design applications and registrations provided by the participating offices through a single and unique platform. Each office owns the content it makes available and is responsible for its daily update.

DesignView offers:

  • Details on industrial designs such as legal status, representations of industrial designs, owner, representative, etc.;
  • Quick access to EUIPO links and national databases;
  • The possibility to print and download documents;
  • Direct information from the official industrial design registers.

With this latest expansion, the total number of offices participating in DesignView is 61.

By completing over 10,000 industrial designs from AGEPI, Designview provides information and access to more than 12.7 million industrial designs.

The integration of AGEPI is the result of the international cooperation program managed by EUIPO in collaboration with its international partners.

DesignView is available free of charge online for all users at the following address: https://www.tmdn.org/tmdsview-web/welcome.html?lang=en.
