EUIPO congratulates Institute on HDB adoption
Mostar, May 14, 2019 - Executive director of the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) Christian Archambeau congratulated Institute for Intellectual Property of Bosnia and Herzegovina on the use of list of terms from the harmonised database in TMclass.
“It is with great pleasure that we write to thank you on the efforts invested so far in our common bilateral activities defined in our Working Plan 2019. In particular, we would like to express our most sincere congratulations to the whole team of the Institute for the excellent work your staff has performed, especially in the translation work of the list of goods and services from the harmonised database (HDB)“, Archambeau writes in congratulatory letter addressed to the director of the Institute for Intellectual Property of Bosnia and Herzegovina Josip Merdžo.
Since Institute’s decision to use HDB, there are now five non-EU IP offices that use and accept terms from this database. “However, this is the first version of the HDB in a non-EU language and I would like to express my great satisfaction at this tangible result of our bilateral cooperation”, writes EUIPO’s executive director.
As of 6 May 2019 the Institute for Intellectual Property of Bosnia and Herzegovina (IIP-BIH) uses list of goods and services from the harmonised database (HDB) in TMclass.
