It is one of the initial stages of the trademark registration process where the status in the Trade Mark Registry website shows as "Send To Vienna Codification". As a part of the trademark registration, any trademarks comprising figurative elements/logo is assigned a Vienna Code by the Indian Trade Mark Registry. This is one of the first steps taken by the Registry where the trademark comprises a figurative element/logo. The Vienna code is assigned based on the nature of the figurative element/logo. Such figurative elements/logos are codified according to the Vienna Agreement.
Vienna codification is done so that trademark searches can be conducted for artwork/logo. Once the Vienna codification is done, the status of the trademark application is usually changed to Formalities Chk Pass or Formalities Chk Fail.
