Rillpac Successfully Registered European Trade mark


EUIPO is the European Union Intellectual Property Office responsible for managing the EU trade mark and the registered Community design. We also work with the IP offices of the EU Member States and international partners to offer a similar registration experience for trade marks and designs across Europe and the world.


At EUIPO we work with ideas, with reputations, with the shape of things to come.

The European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), which was known as OHIM until 23 March 2016, was created as a decentralised agency of the European Union to offer IP rights protection to businesses and innovators across the European Union (EU) and beyond. Since our foundation in 1994 we have been based in Alicante, in Spain, where we manage the registration of the EU trade mark and the registered Community design.

We register around
120 000 EU trade marks and close to 85 000 designs annually, offering intellectual property protection to companies and individuals in a market of more than 500 million consumers.

Since our inception, our core business has been the registration of EU trade marks and registered Community designs, which are valid throughout the European Union (EU). However, our work at EU level also extends to the harmonisation of registration practices and the development of common tools, in cooperation with our partners in national and regional IP offices throughout the EU-28, users and other institutional partners. Together, we are the European Trade Mark and Design Network (ETMDN), working together to offer users a similar registration experience, be it at national or at EU level.

Another of our goals is to become a truly paperless office. To achieve this, we have made a firm commitment towards online registration of trade marks and designs: today nearly 99% of all trade mark applications are made online and more than 75,000 users have registered in our website's User Area.

At the EUIPO we also host the European Observatory on Infringements of Intellectual Property Rights. Entrusted to us in June 2012, the Observatory brings public and private stakeholders together in the fight against piracy and counterfeiting. For the EUIPO, this has meant becoming an active participant in the next stage of the intellectual property lifecycle: helping to secure the results of creativity and innovation after trade mark registration.
Our staff

Our staff come from the four corners of Europe and the wider world. The Office has five working languages – English, French, German, Italian and Spanish – and processes applications in 23 official languages of the EU.

Our core team is made up of close to 800 professionals working within the legal framework of the European Union Staff Regulations. The Executive Director of EUIPO is Portuguese national António Campinos, who took up the post on 1 October 2010. The Deputy Executive Director is Belgian national Christian Archambeau, who took up the role on 1 December 2010.
Organisational chart
Legal background

The regulation establishing the Office was adopted by the Council of the European Union in December 1993 and revised on two occasions, in 2009 and in 2015. It created the European Union trade mark (formerly known as the Community trade mark) as a legal instrument in European Union law and established the EUIPO (formerly known as OHIM) as an EU agency with legal, administrative and financial autonomy. Council Regulation (EC) No 6/2002 of 12 December 2001 created the registered Community design. On 23 March 2016, the Office changed its name to the European Union Intellectual Property Office upon the entry into force of Regulation 2015/2424.
