Moldova and Peru have decided to use the list of terms from the harmonised database in TMclass

05/07/2018

As of 07 May 2018 the State Agency on Intellectual Property of the Republic of Moldova (AGEPI) and the National Institute for the Defense of Free Competition and the Protection of Intellectual Property of Peru (INDECOPI) have decided to use the list of goods and services from the harmonised database (HDB) in TMclass.

As a result, these are the two first non-EU IP offices that will use terms from HDB, one of the expected outcomes of the strategic project “Extension of tools” within EUIPO’s international cooperation projects. This project aims at extending the reach of the EUIPN’s tools beyond the EU for the benefit of global users.

With the extension of the reach of HDB to AGEPI and INDECOPI through TMclass, this tool now offers users the opportunity to search and translate more than 58.000 harmonised concepts among 29 IP offices.
