2018 version of the eleventh edition of the Nice Classification
As reported on WIPO's website today, a new version of the 11th edition of the International Classification of Goods and Services ("Nice Classification") will enter into force on 1 January 2018.
As always, the new version will include changes and the new version will be available on WIPO's website here in due course.
The new version of the Nice Classification will be applied to any IR application received by the office of origin on or after 1 January 2018, as well as any IR application received by WIPO on or after 1 January 2018, when the application is received by WIPO after the two month time limit under Article 3(4) Madrid Protocol. The Madrid Goods and Services Manager (www.wipo.int/mgs/) will also be updated to reflect these changes.
