Use of Vienna Classification Exclusively


The Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) is exclusively using the Vienna Classification to classify the figurative elements of a trademark effective by June 7, 2010.

CIPO will end its double codification of figurative elements known as "figurative headings", a non-standardized classification scheme.

In order to help the migration to the use, a document will be prepared to illustrate how the Vienna classification will be applied and demonstrate the correlation between the previously used figurative headings and the Vienna classification.
