As of 29 June 2020, 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.
With the addition of more than 51000 industrial designs from IPONZ, DesignView provides information and access to more than 16,2 million designs in total.
Since the introduction of DesignView on 19 November 2012, the tool has served more than 5,6 million searches from 163 different countries, with the UK, Germany and China among the most frequent users.
The integration of IPONZ is a concrete result of the International Cooperation programme managed by EUIPO in collaboration with its international partners.
