HISTORY OF THE VIENNA CLASSIFICATION, At the request of a number of industrial property offices of member countries of the Paris Union. the United International Bureaux for the Protection of Intellectual Property BIRPI predecessor of. the World Intellectual Property Organization WIPO began working with a Committee of Experts. on the drafting of an international classification of the figurative elements of marks The. classification was established by an agreement concluded on 12 June 1973 at the Vienna. Diplomatic Conference which was called the Vienna Agreement. The countries that are party to the Vienna Agreement Establishing an International Classification. of the Figurative Elements of Marks have adopted and apply a common classification for the. figurative elements of marks, The Vienna Agreement entered into force on 9 August 1985. The Classification facilitates trade mark anticipation searches and avoids substantial. reclassification work when documents are exchanged at international level As a consequence the. countries party to the Vienna Agreement do not need to draw up their own national classification or. keep an existing one up to date, The EUIPO uses a modified version of the Vienna Classification administered by WIPO called the. EUIPO Vienna Classification Manual This manual has been adapted to the EUIPO s specific. needs creating new codes or letting some codes fall into disuse. PURPOSE AND SCOPE OF THE EUIPO VIENNA CLASSIFICATION. All figurative elements of a European Union trade mark need to be classified to perform similarity. searches in order to draw up the Union search report The same classification also allows any user. to search for figurative marks in the EUIPO s online search tools. Any search results retrieved from either the Union search or a search using a web based search. tool are of an informative nature and cannot be considered binding as regards possible conflicts. between trade marks, STRUCTURE OF THE EUIPO VIENNA CLASSIFICATION MANUAL.
The Classification constitutes a hierarchical system that proceeds from the general to the specific. dividing all figurative elements into categories divisions and sections codes Where considered. appropriate there are explanatory notes to give additional information about how to use the. particular items, The auxiliary sections A are intended for figurative elements that are already covered by the. main section and give additional information that is considered useful for ease of anticipation. searching The sections created by the EUIPO are indicated with an O. Every category division and section has been given a number according to a special coding. system Every figurative element in a section is referred to by three numbers the first a figure. from 1 to 31 indicates the category the second indicates the division a figure from 1 to 99 and. the third indicates the section a figure from 1 to 99 For instance the representation of a little. girl eating belongs to Category 2 Human beings Division 5 Children Main Section 3 Girls. and Auxiliary Section 18 Children drinking or eating. EUIPO Figurative Classification Manual Page 4 of 89. The number of divisions and sections varies according to the categories and divisions to which. they belong Within the divisions and sections certain numbers have been left vacant in order to. permit the introduction of new divisions or sections when necessary. This document is based on the seventh edition of the WIPO Classification and comprises a total. 31 categories,147 divisions,818 main sections and,715 auxiliary sections. REVISIONS AND EDITIONS OF THE EUIPO VIENNA CLASSIFICATION. Since the entry into force of the Vienna Agreement on 9 August 1985 the Committee of Experts. has regularly adopted a number of amendments and additions These modifications are. incorporated and published in a new edition of the WIPO Vienna Classification every five years. Whenever the Committee of Experts approves amendments to its Classification the EUIPO. revises the amendments and incorporates the applicable changes into the EUIPO Classification. Manual creating a new version that replaces the previous edition. In the EUIPO Classification Manual all codes are indexed with a colour coding which helps to. identify the codes used only by the EUIPO or codes that have been added recently in the WIPO. edition see Caption, This edition is based on the seventh version of the WIPO Classification which was published in. January 2013,LANGUAGES OF THE EUIPO VIENNA CLASSIFICATION. The EUIPO Classification Manual is published in English and French like the WIPO Classification. both language versions are equally authentic, EUIPO Figurative Classification Manual Page 5 of 89.
