OAPI: Adopting the Eleventh Edition of the Nice Classification

The African Intellectual Property Organization (OAPI) recently adopted the 11th Edition of the Nice Classification, thus replacing the outgoing 10th Edition. The adoption of the 11th Edition will not affect trademarks already filed and registered. Upon next renewal, goods and services affected by this change in formalities should be reclassified accordingly by the Trademark Office. Source:  Saba IP
