Finland joins DesignView

As of 30 November, the Finnish Patent and Registration Office (PRH) has made its design data available to the DesignView search tool.

The incorporation of PRH is the outcome of the Cooperation Fund programme managed by OHIM in association with its partners from the European Union.

With PRH on-board, DesignView now contains data from 47 participating offices, including those accessible through the ASEAN DesignView. With the addition of more 44 448 designs from Finland, DesignView now provides information and access to almost 9 million industrial designs in total.

Since the introduction of DesignView on 19 November 2012, the tool has served more than 1,34 million searches from 141 different countries, with the most frequent users from Germany, Spain and UK.
