US grants registered trade mark to IOMI®

In 2010, the U.S. Patent Office approved IOMI’s® registered trade mark applications for both the organization’s acronym and its flagship training program, preventing trade associations, alliances, companies, or individuals from lawfully using IOMI® Certified Office Mover® without earning it. 
The registration certificate from the US Patent and Trademark Office states that the IOMI® logo is intended “to be used by authorized persons” who have “successfully completed a designated training program on the fundamentals of moving an office and managing the move” and “continues to meet the educational requirements of the certifier”.

The government spent nearly three years scrutinizing IOMI’s® instructional material in sales and marketing, job estimating formula, and operations before granting the familiar “R” in a circle.

“The US Trade Mark Office rarely grants registered trade marks for training such as ours because few programs can hold up under the review process,” said Katz.  “Being granted a registered trade mark recognizes and protects the proprietary and uniqueness of our IOMI® brand.”

At the start of 2011, IOMI® counts Certified Office Movers® in 36 states plus Washington DC, the UK, and Australia. That means that all key employees at every branch of the world's largest agents, van lines, and independents have successfully completed training and earned the right to call themselves IOMI® Certified Office Movers®. Our students tell us it opens doors.
