You can use filters to restrict your search, e.g. to certain Locarno classes.


Activate or reset filters

You can activate the filter(s) you wish to use before carrying out a search or use filters to refine your search results. In the second case, only the filter applicable to the search result will be displayed.
Active filters are indicated by an asterisk as well as appearing under the heading ‘Filters’.
You can remove the filters individually (directly beside the filters or under the heading ‘Filters’) or you can remove all at the same time by clicking on ‘Reset’.


Filter by date

For the filters Filing date, Registration date, Cancellation date, Publication date and Expiry date, you can choose a suggested period of time or enter your own. The date ranges ‘Last week’, ‘Last month’ and Last year’ are calculated from the search date.


Filter: Electronic delivery address

This filter is only available to registered users. You can use it to search for IP rights that are linked with the specified electronic delivery address.


Filter: Filing type

If you create an entire line of designs, you can combine a number of designs in one application provided that they belong to the same class of goods. You can use this filter to search for such multiple applications.


Filter: Locarno class

The IPI classifies each design according to the Locarno Classification when entering it in the register. This makes it possible to easily search for all registered designs in a particular product class.


If you select more than one Locarno class, you will find all designs that claim protection in at least one of these classes.
If you are only interested in IP rights that claim protection in all of these classes, please do a search in specific fields.


Filter: Priority country

Up to six months after the first filing of a design, the same design can be filed in other countries and the priority date of the first filing can be claimed. You can use this filter to search for specific priority countries.


Filter: Publication date

The publication date relates to the official publication of new designs in Switzerland.
