The Omani Trademark Office has recently shifted its trademark classification system from Nice’s 8th edition to Nice’s 9th Edition. Most of the updates in class headings between the 8th edition and the 9th edition of the Nice classification system involve classes 21, 29, 42, and 45. Notably, in the 9th edition, the disclaimer “not of precious metal or coated therewith” is removed from class 21, the item “frozen” is added to class 29, and the item “legal services” is removed from class 42 and added to class 45. Minor changes and additions have also been made to other classes (14, 20, 26, and 34). Changes and amendments include, among other things, the transfer of goods and services from one class to another, deletions, as well as changes in class headings.
