Bulgarian PTO Joins EuroClass Project
The fifth stage of the EuroClass project, aimed at creating a harmonized EU system in the field of classification of trademarks, has been accomplished successfully by integrating the Bulgarian Patent Office (BPO) in the project.
Currently, thirteen European national offices are integrated and the system functions in twenty-two languages. The member countries, other than Bulgaria, include Spain, Sweden, UK, Portugal, the Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Poland, the Slovak Republic, Italy, and the Benelux countries (Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg).
The EuroClass is a joint project between the Office of Harmonization for the Internal Market (OHIM) and the national offices of member states. The goal is to provide a common online classification tool where national offices can publish their official and approved lists of goods and services. The EuroClass also helps facilitate the transition to electronic filing.
