As of 26 October 2015, the Polish Patent Office (PPO) and the Intellectual Property Office of the Republic of Serbia (IPORS) have made their industrial design data available to the Designview search tool.
The incorporation of PPO is the outcome of the Cooperation Fund programme managed by OHIM in association with its partners from the European Union.
The integration of IPORS is a concrete result of the International Cooperation programme managed by OHIM in collaboration with its international partners.
With PPO and IPORS on-board, there are now 38 participating offices in Designview. With the addition of about 28.000 designs from Poland and almost 10.000 designs from Serbia, Designview now provides information and access to almost 8,8 million industrial designs in total.
Since the introduction of Designview on 19 November 2012, the tool has served more than 1,25 million searches from 141 different countries, with users from Germany, Spain and the UK among the most frequent visitors.
