The TMCH project provides an automated interface to allow users to interact in an automated fashion with the data stored in the Clearinghouse database (TMCH database). XML has been widely used by registries and registrars to provide an automated interfaces (the API) for their
data exchange. This API provides similar functionality and will be provided using TLS to be as close to the current EPP standard as possible. The API may only be used by Trademark Agents that have contracted with the Clearinghouse.

 

This document contains some sample of commands and responses based on the XSD that should help building implementations to use the API provided to get direct access to the various objects in the TMCH database in an automated fashion.

 

The complete XSD scheme can be found under the section XSD schemes. It extends the Signed Mark Data (SMD) XSD description draft-lozano-smd-01.txt that was provided by ICANN. The structure of the mark block is intentionally included and not modified to prevent misunderstanding, make the mapping easy and prevent misinterpretation of the various fields.
