Trade mark and design handbooks move online

18th May 2021

The CITMA and CIPA trade mark handbooks are now available through Thomson Reuters’ ProView app as ebooks – free trials are available until 15th June.


The free trial includes access to The Trade Mark Handbook, The European Union Trade Mark Handbook and The Community Designs Handbook, produced by us and CIPA in collaboration with Thomson Reuters.

These handbooks have traditionally been offered in a loose-leaf format, this new platform provides a flexible alternative. The publication is regularly updated. 

You can request a trial between 18th May and 15th June 2021. No payment details will be taken at the time of getting your trial started. 

The trial will be initially set to run for 28 days and can be for up to three users in any one organisation.
