PTO updates Nice Classification
The Chilean Institute of Industrial Property (INAPI) started using the new version of the Nice Classification of Goods and Services (10th edition) on January 1, 2016, and it is already available in the online classifier of INAPI´s website.
This contributes to unify the criteria used in INAPI with the main PTOs worldwide, which also started using the updated Nice Classification on the same date.
In the new version, some new products and services have been added and others have been deleted. Changes include:class 5 now covers powdered milk for babies, whereas medical products for oral hygiene have been deleted; class 9 now covers smartwatches and protective films adapted for computer screens; and class 45 now includes personal wardrobe styling consultancy.
