The purpose of this project is to develop and implement a process to regularly exchange statistics on the main variables of interest to the TM5 partners, and to make this information available to the public.
The information included covers filing volumes of trademarks and designs, including the geographical distribution by origin. Other data of interest, such as renewal rates, the number of opposition filings, and timeliness and quality statistics, will also be included. It is foreseen that this information is updated twice a year.
In addition to historical data, the project also includes the exchange of forecasted filing volumes in each of the five TM5 partners. This information will be a valuable input into the forecasting process of each partner.
