Latvian PTO Joins EuroClass Project

Feb 27 2013 - 12:38

In December 2012 the Latvian PTO joined the EuroClass project, a joint project between the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) and the PTOs of member states.

As Latvia is the last EU office that joined EuroClass, the lists of goods and services of all EU member states and Croatia, expected to join the EU on July 1, 2013, are now available through this online classification tool, which can be used to search for terms and compare databases in different countries.

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), the Japan Patent Office and the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property have also joined EuroClass, which is available in 24 languages, including Japanese.

Later this year the name will be changed from EuroClass to TMClass.
