Montenegro joins DesignClass
As of 13 July 2020, the Ministry of Economy of Montenegro is part of DesignClass and will use and accept the list of terms from the harmonised database of product indications (HDBPI) in DesignClass.
Following the decision of the Ministry of Economy of Montenegro to use HDBPI, there are now nine non-EU IP offices in DesignClass that use and accept terms from this harmonised database.
The last addition of the Ministry of Economy of Montenegro in DesignClass brings the total number of participating IP offices to 36.
DesignClass offers users the opportunity to search and translate product indications in 28 languages.
The adoption of HDBPI by the Ministry of Economy of Montenegro is a concrete result of the International Cooperation programme managed by the EUIPO in collaboration with its international partners.
