Trademark classification is called as classification of services and goods. Before filing the Trademark application, it is required to find the relevant trademark class in which the goods/services you wish to seek your trademark protection belongs.
All goods and services are divided into 45 classes of The Nice Classification, an international classification for goods and services applied for the registration of marks. Each class contains a pre-approved list of items. These cover all the goods and services that included in that class.
- Goods are listed in classes 1 to 34
- Services are listed in classes 35 to 45
Registered Trademark basically benefits the company who has come up with new products or designs. Any registered company can trademark anything that belongs to their company starting from the company’s name till the products design.
It is to be noted that, once you file your application, you can’t add more classes or pre-approved terms. Hence, If the course of your business is diverse in nature, you can also seek the trademark protection in more than one class by filing an application in multiple classes. A registered trademark lasts for 10 years.
