    European Cooperation: Improvements in the Greek Software Package

    Improvements in the Greek Software Package TM e-Filing and e-Services and the implementation of the transposition of Directive (EU) 2015/2436

    The General Secretariat of Commerce of the Government of Greece (GR GGE), with the support of the EUIPO’s European Cooperation Projects, has improved the electronic services available for its users.

    It did so by upgrading the technical platform that supports the Greek (GGE) Software Package (SP) Front Office system and implementing the transposition of Directive (EU) 2015/2436.

    The GGE SP Front Office platform now allows users to file applications electronically for the new types of trade marks (e.g. shape mark, colour mark, position mark). They can also benefit from the user experience enhancements in some of the components of the user interface (e.g. improved goods and services search, TM Similarity report).

    The launch of the improved SP e-Filing and e-Services at GR GGE took place on 6th August 2021. This is yet another example of a successful implementation of a Front Office upgrade in an intellectual property office of the EU.

    This release is the result of the work carried out by the EUIPO and its partners under the framework of the European Cooperation Projects. These projects support intellectual property offices in developing more efficient, reliable and user-friendly tools and services for trade marks and designs within the European Union Intellectual Property Network (EUIPN).
