Trademark Class 10: Medical Supplies & Instruments

According to NICE Classification, Trademark Class 10 is opted to register a trademark for surgical, dental and veterinary apparatus and instruments.

The NICE Classification was established in 1957 by NICE Agreement, and it divides marks into 45 different classes by Goods and Services (Classes 1-34 for Goods and Classes 35-45 for Services). The purpose of these classifications is to allow users to seek to trademark a goods or services into classes most appropriate to their business.

TM Class 10 includes surgical, medical, dental and veterinary apparatus and instruments, artificial limbs, eyes and teeth; orthopaedic articles; and suture materials.

Why Should We Opt For TM Class 10?

You would choose Trademark Class 10 if you were registering any of these types of goods:

  • Special furniture for medical use
  • Hygiene rubber articles
  • Supportive bandages

Related Classes

A related trademark class is one that is related to another class; this is due to the Indian Trademark Office (ITO) has determined that applicants registering within Class 10 may register in these other classes too.

If you are not sure while choosing Class 10 for your product, you also consider the following “Related Classes”: Class 5- Pharmaceuticals, Class 42- Science and Technology Services, Class 35- Advertising and Business Services and Class 44- Medical and Vet Services.

Examples of Class 10 includes ABBOT under Class 10, Class 5 and Class 19, ALCON under Class 10, Class 5 and Class 19.

Trademark Registration fees also vary on bases of the Class system. You must pay a separate registration fee for each class of goods and services that you want to register. For instance, if you are going to register a trademark for Cleaning products in Class 3 and plastic items in Class 17, you should pay two separate fees.

It is necessary to choose the correct class at the time of registering a trademark, if you register a trademark in the wrong class, you must start the registration process from the beginning.
