From July 2022, the IPI will no longer offer trade mark searches
The IPI has assisted applicants and proprietors of trade marks with professional trade mark searches for over 60 years. It has thus given clients a reliable basis for taking decisions about trade mark protection.
Nowadays, people who want to search for trade marks or monitor the market are increasingly doing so themselves using free online databases. As a result, the demand for trade mark searches has continually decreased in recent years. Due mainly to this trend, the IPI has decided to withdraw from the trade mark search market from 1 July 2022. All our search experts will continue to work at the IPI.
You can continue to do searches. The IPI’s website lists potential providers who can offer you professional support in addition to the free databases.
