ID5 is an industrial design framework comprised of the leading five intellectual property offices (US, EU, Japan, Korea, China). Acknowledging the growing importance of industrial design, the five largest trademark offices in the world (TM5) created the ID5 forum in 2015. ID5 focuses on improving consistency in registration policies, cataloging office practices, promoting interoperable procedural frameworks, and protecting emerging designs such as graphical user interfaces (GUIs), animations and other new technology designs.
