Zimbabwe - Classification of Retail and Wholesale Services

We are pleased to report that the Zimbabwe Controller has now confirmed that retail and wholesale services are classified in class 35 of the International Classification of Goods and Services, with effect from 19 August 2005. The classification in the Regulations will be amended accordingly.

Pending applications filed prior to 19 August 2005 must comply with the old classifications, in terms of which retail and wholesale services are classified in class 42 of the International Classification of Goods and Services. Once these pending applications have proceeded to registration, they must then be amended from class 42 to class 35 (by latest at the date of first renewal), or split into two classes if the proprietor requires registration for services in both classes.
