European Cooperation: Slovenia completes the digitisation of its trade mark and design dossiers
On 30 October 2020, the Slovenian Intellectual Property Office (SIPO) successfully completed the digitisation of its paper dossiers relating to trade marks and designs under the ECP5 project: Capture and Store Historical Files (CSHF).
The CSHF project, carried out within the framework of European Cooperation Projects, aims at digitising paper dossiers across EU national Intellectual Property Offices to enable easy and rapid access to documentation and data related to trade mark and design dossiers.
The digitisation process began in June 2019 with collaboration of different teams from the EUIPO and SIPO. Despite challenges in recent months due to COVID-19, the dedication and cooperation of SIPO, the EUIPO and the service providers allowed the project to continue and more than 46 000 trade mark and design dossiers have now been digitised.
The ultimate goal of the CSHF project is to support the participating offices in creating a paperless working environment and to help users interact digitally with all EU national Intellectual Property Offices.
