Hungary joins DesignView

The Hungarian Intellectual Property Office (HIPO) has joined Designview, the registered designs search tool.

DesignView is the largest online search tool for registered designs available.

With the addition of HIPO, there are now 27 participating offices in DesignView. The addition of 13,000 Hungarian designs means there are now more than 3.65 million designs in the tool.

Since its introduction on 19 November 2012, the tool has served more than 800.000 searches from 135 different countries, with users from Spain, Germany and the UK among the most frequent visitors

The Hungarian Office has also implemented the Common Examiner Support Tool (CESTO), which provides a harmonised search of key databases to support examiners.

The two implementations are as a result of cooperation and joint work between OHIM’s Cooperation Fund teams and IP experts at HIPO.
