  • ID List - The TM 5 “ID List Project” is designed to assist trademark right holders who seek trademark protection in multiple jurisdictions.
  • Non-Traditional Trademarks - This project is designed to improve and potentially harmonize the TM5 partners’ methods of searching and retrieving non-traditional trademarks. Thus, this project aims to assist trademark right holders or others who search national trademark registries in multiple jurisdictions
  • Common Status Descriptors - The TM5 “Common Status Descriptors” (“CST”) Project is designed to aid trademark right holders and other interested parties who may have dealings with two or more partner offices.

  • Bad Faith Trademark - The issue of “bad-faith trademark filings” is a common problem in the world. “Bad faith filings” could refer, for example, to trademark filings by third parties to register the identical or similar trademarks of others in order to take advantage of the fact that the genuine trademark owners have not registered them. In order to take measures against these bad-faith trademark filings, the Trademark Trilateral Offices (the Japan Patent Office (JPO), the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (EUIPO) and the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO)), in collaboration with the State Administration for Industry and Commerce of the People’s Republic of China (SAIC), held seminars in 2010 and 2011.
  • Quality Management for Trademark Examination - The TM5 Offices will enhance mutual understanding and trust by exchanging information on respective quality management systems and relevant initiatives. Then, the TM5 Offices will understand differences among each other in terms of their quality management systems and initiatives in order to mutually improve the quality management system of each Office by for example voluntarily reflecting information on the differences upon its own initiatives, as needed
  • Image Search - This project is aimed at driving future development of image search systems available for figurative trademark examinations.

  • Taxonomy and TMclass - TMclass helps you to search for and classify Goods and Services (G&S) that you need to apply for trade mark protection. You can also find equivalent translations for G&S in 33 other languages and check whether the terms are included in the classification databases of other Participating Offices (PO). Each Office continues to own its terms and is responsible for the maintenance and updating of its database. This ensures that users can identify which terms are accepted by the Office

  • TMview - This project aims to look at the possibilities of improving access to information related to trade marks. Our current strategy is to expand the current TMview platform by including data from the TM5 partners.
