As of 15 November 2021, the Antigua and Barbuda Intellectual Property and Companies Office (ABIPCO) will be included in TMclass. ABIPCO will join with the alphabetical list of the Nice classification and a supplement of common terms between the harmonised database of goods and services (HDB) and the Madrid Goods & Services (MGS).
The inclusion of ABIPCO in TMclass brings the total number of participating national and regional IP offices, including ARIPO, OAPI, WIPO and the EUIPO, to 89.
TMclass offers users the opportunity to search for and translate goods and services to and from any of the 44 languages available as well as verifying the terms’ correct classification under the Nice classification.
The incorporation of ABIPCO in TMclass with Nice and the common terms between HDB and MGS is a concrete result of the CARIFORUM Intellectual Property and Innovation Project (CarIPI) funded under the 11th European Development Fund and implemented by the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).
