Twelfth Edition of Locarno Classification in Force Soon

WIPO informs that a new edition of the international classification used for the purposes of the registration of industrial designs (Locarno Classification) will enter into force on January 1, 2019.

WIPO does not reclassify the products, which constitute an industrial design or in relation to which an industrial design is to be used, in the international registrations classified according to a previous edition.

WIPO will apply the twelfth edition of the Locarno Classification to all international applications that have a filing date on or after January 1, 2019.

The twelfth edition of the Locarno Classification is available here
