As of 13 June 2022, the Patents and Companies Registration Agency of Zambia (PACRA) has made its trade mark data available to the TMview search tool.
With PACRA on board of TMview, the tool now contains data from 77 participating offices.
With the addition of more than 60.000 trade marks from PACRA, TMview now provides information and access to more than 106,5 million trade marks in total.
Since the introduction of TMview on 13 April 2010, the tool has served around 102,8 million searches from users worldwide, with United States, Spain, Germany, Italy and China among the most frequent visitors.
The integration of PACRA in TMview is a concrete result of the EU funded project called Intellectual Property Rights and Innovation in Africa (AfrIPI), which is directed by the European Commission and executed by the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).
