The Intellectual Property Office of New Zealand (IPONZ) has made its design data available to the DesignView search tools.
With IPONZ on board, DesignView now contains data from 72 participating offices. IPONZ added data on more than 51,000 industrial designs. So, now DesignView provides information and access to more than 16.2 million designs in total.
Since the introduction of DesignView on November 19, 2012, it has served more than 5,6 million searches from 163 different countries, with the UK, Germany and China among the most frequent users.
The successful integration of IPONZ is a result of the international cooperation programme managed by EUIPO in collaboration with its international partners.
