Annual Report 2022


Dear Readers,

In such a tumultuous time, when the rhythm of the transformations occurring globally is more and more alert, the protection of industrial property rights gets vitally important for all sectors of activity.

That is why OSIM, as unique authority on the Romanian territory in the field of ensuring the industrial property protection, year after year, focuses its activities and actions on supporting a competitive and innovative environment.

In 2022, through all the actions taken, OSIM aimed at respecting, accomplishing and maintaining the integrated management system at the highest level, in order to meet the requirements of the Order of the Government General Secretariat No. 600/2018, and of ISO 9001:2015 and ISO/IEC 27001:2018 standards.

Last year, the activities in the field of digitization of services continued, so that the module dedicated to the processing of trademarks and designs case files pending before the courts, in which OSIM was summoned as a party, was completed.

At the same time, in 2022, OSIM started to implement a new complex integrated module for processing the internationally filed trademark applications for registration and the internationally registered trademarks in which Romania is a designated state.

Although started still under the COVID-19 restrictions, 2022 was a year in which OSIM specialists were involved in 34 actions of industrial property protection promotion and valorization by means of seminars, conferences, round tables, courses, tutorials, fairs and exhibitions. In 2022, OSIM continued the activities of cooperation with international and European intellectual property organizations, such as the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), the European Patent Office (EPO), the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO). On October 27, 2022, a bilateral meeting between the representatives of the EUIPO Chambers of Appeal and the representatives of OSIM took place in Bucharest, followed by a session dedicated to the specialists in the industrial property field. Finally, I invite you to run through the pages of this Annual Report that thoroughly presents the results and achievements of the State Office for Inventions and Trademarks in 2022.


Marian-Octavian ŞERBĂNESCU,
