INTERNATIONAL CLASSIFICATIONS

The International Classifications of industrial property subject matters (hereinafter referred to as the International Classifications) are established by the respective international agreements.

In spite of the fact that for a long period Ukraine had not been a member state to the international agreements concerning the International Classifications, they have been translated into Ukrainian and used in Ukraine as one of the basic reference and search tool to patent documentation collections.

It is due to the translation of the International Classifications from English into Ukrainian that the corresponding provisions of the Decrees of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine of December 23, 1993 3769-3771, have been fulfilled in particular on creating by July 1, 1997 Ukrainian-language reference and search tools.

Ukraine accessed to international agreements concerning the International Classifications of industrial property subject matters, in particular:

  • The Nice Agreement concerning the International Classification of Goods and Services for the Purposes of the Registration of Marks ratified by the Law of Ukraine of 01.06.2000 1762-III. The Agreement entered into force in Ukraine on December 29, 2000.
  • The Locarno Agreement establishing the International Classification for Industrial Designs ratified by the Law of Ukraine of 17.12.08 684-VI. The Agreement entered into force in Ukraine on July 7, 2009.
  • The Vienna Agreement establishing the International Classification of the Figurative Elements of Marks ratified by the Law of Ukraine of 18.02.09 1000-VI. The Agreement entered into force in Ukraine on July 29, 2009.
  • The Strasbourg Agreement concerning the International Patent Classification ratified by the Law of Ukraine of 17.12.08 683-VI. The Agreement entered into force in Ukraine on April 7, 2010.

Accession to the mentioned international agreements by Ukraine enables our country not only to use the International Classifications but also to participate actively in their enhancement, in particular, within the Committees of corresponding Unions.

The current versions/editions of the International Classifications translated into Ukrainian represented as electronic versions complete with search systems – Information and Reference Systems (IRS) – are listed below. All systems are accessible free of charge.
