Vienna Agreement Establishing an International Classification of the Figurative Elements of Marks
The Vienna Agreement establishes an international classification for trademarks that comprises a list of sections, categories and groups which classify the figurative elements of trademarks. The competent offices of the contracting States must indicate in the official documents and publications relating to registrations and renewals of marks the numbers of the categories, divisions and sections of the Classification in which the figurative elements of those marks are ranged. There are only 25 parties to the Agreement but the Vienna Classification is used in at least 30 contracting states.
