Since 1 October 2019, the African Intellectual Property Organization (OAPI) has made its trade mark data available to the TMview search tool.
With OAPI on board of TMview, the tool now contains data from 70 participating offices.
With the addition of more than 26.000 trade marks from OAPI, TMview provides information and access to more than 54.8 million trade marks in total.
Since the introduction of TMview on 13 April 2010, the tool has served more than 61,5 million searches from 169 different countries, with Spain, China and Germany among the most frequent users.
The integration of OAPI is a concrete result of the International Cooperation programme managed by EUIPO in collaboration with its international partners.
