On the 20th April 2015, the National Institute for Standardization and Industrial Property (INNORPI) was integrated into the DesignView database, making its design data available to the Designview search tool. DesignView is a fully multilingual centralised system providing access to all registered design information held by the participating National Offices, allowing users to perform searches in one common platform.
Designview now boasts 29 participating offices and, with the addition of 12,000 designs provided by INNORPI, it now provides information and access to circa 4.2 million designs in total.
Tunisia’s said integration is a concrete result of the International Cooperation programme managed by OHIM in collaboration with its international partners.
