Mexico to use the list of terms from the harmonised database in TMclass





Industrial Property

From today, 12 November 2018, the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (IMPI) will use the list of goods and services from the harmonised database (HDB) in TMclass and IMPI’s online tool ClasNiza.


Following IMPI’s decision to use HDB there are now four non-EU IP offices that use and accept terms from this database.

With the extension of the reach of HDB to IMPI through TMclass, this tool now offers users the opportunity to search and translate harmonised concepts among 31 IP offices.


The adoption of HDB by IMPI is a concrete result of the IP Key Latin America programme directed by the European Commission and executed by the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).
