The Trade Marks and Designs Registration Office of the European Union
The OAMI Trade Mark Group was set up in 1998 and met for the first time on 3 July. In 2003, this Group became the OAMI Users' Group, maintaining its important role of encouraging regular consultation and feedback between users and OHIM with regard to all aspects of the Community trade mark and design systems.
The meetings of this Group cover current problems identified by the international non-governmental organisations participating in the meetings, which represent interested parties from the sector. The European Commission is also represented. Amongst some of the current issues being discussed are:
There are currently 22 member organisations. The member organisations are the following: AIM, AIPPI, APRAM, BEDA, BMM, BusinessEurope, CEFIC, CNIPA, ECTA, EFPIA, EURATEX, FEMIPI, FICPI, GRUR, ICC, ICOGRADA, ICSID, INTA, ITMA, LES, MARQUES, and UNION.
The OAMI Users’ group meets once a year in Alicante to discuss questions raised by users prior to the meeting. The dates of the subsequent meetings are announced on the events section of this website.
