The Vienna Codification Process
The Vienna Classification or Vienna Codification, established by the Vienna agreement (1973), is an international classification of marks’ symbolic elements. Once the Trademark registration application is filed, the Trademark Registrar will apply the Vienna classification to the Trademark based on marks’ figurative elements. While this work is in progress, the trademark application status usually reflects as “Sent for Vienna Codification.”
After Vienna Codification’s completion, the Trademark registration application will get allotted to an officer in the Trademark Registrar’s office. The officer will then review the Trademark application for correctness and issue a Trademark examination report. The officer can accept the Trademark application, allow trademark journal publishing, or object to the Trademark registration process.
If the application is rejected, the applicant can appear before the Trademark officer and address the objections. If the officer finds the justification satisfying, the Trademark would be then allowed for Trademark journal publication. If the reasons are not satisfactory, the applicant has the right to appeal the officer’s decision before the Intellectual Property Appellate Board.
Trademark Journal Publication
When the Trademark Registrar accepts the registration application, the proposed Trademark is published in the Trademark journal. This journal is published weekly and includes all the trademarks that the Registrar has received. Also, the public can object to the Trademark Registration if they think that the registration can damage them. If there are no objections within 90 days of the publication, then the mark will be registered within 12 weeks.
If the application faces opposition by a third party, a hearing will be called for by the Trademark Hearing officer. Both the applicant and the opposer have a chance to appear and provide their side of justification, respectively. Based on the hearings and the evidence put forth, the Trademark Hearing Officer will determine if the application should be accepted or rejected. However, the decision by the Hearing officer can also be challenged by the escalating officer.
If there are no objections or oppositions, only the Trademark manuscript and trademark registration will be prepared and issued. Only after the Trademark registration Certificate is issued, the Trademark is considered to be a registered trademark of the owner, granting the owner some exclusive rights of the mark. The ® Symbol can now be placed to the logo or the Trademark.
