Jordan Adopts Ninth Edition of Nice Classification

01 Dec 2008

AMMAN – The Ninth Edition of the International Classification of Goods and Services for the Purposes of the Registration of Marks under the Nice Agreement (Nice Classification) has been officially adopted in Jordan with effect from November 14, 2008, according to the Trademark Office at the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

The Ninth Edition will replace the prior national classification which was an equivalent to the Seventh Edition of NICE Classification.
As of the aforementioned date, the Trademark Office has been accepting trademark applications for goods and services under the same edition of the classification.

The Nice Classification is a system of classifying goods and services for the purpose of registering trademarks. The system groups products into 45 classes and allows users seeking to trademark a good or service to choose from these classes as appropriate.

Since the system is recognized in numerous countries, this makes applying for trademarks internationally a more streamlined process, and it is specified by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). The Ninth Edition of the Classification has been in force since January 1, 2007.
