As of 17 October 2016, the National Institute for Intellectual Property of Brazil (INPI) has made its industrial design data available to the Designview search tool.
The integration of INPI is a concrete result of the EUIPO’s International Cooperation framework in collaboration with its international partners.
With INPI on-board, Designview now contains data from 51 offices.
With the addition of almost 90 000 designs from INPI, Designview now provides information and access to more than 10 million designs in total.
Since the introduction of Designview on 19 November 2012, the tool has served more than 2 million searches from 145 different countries, with Germany, Spain and the UK among the most frequent users.
