Trademark Class 13: Firearms

According to NICE Classification, Trademark Class 13 is opted to register a trademark for firearms, weapons, or firework.

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 trademark a goods or services into classes most appropriate to their business.


TM Class 13 includes firearms; ammunition and projectiles; explosives; and fireworks.

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 13 may register in these other classes too.

If you are not sure while choosing Class 13 for your product, you also consider the following “Related Classes”: Class 8- Hand tools and Implements, Class 7- Machines and Machines tools, Class 10- Surgical and Medical Instruments, Class 12- Vehicles and Vehicle Components, and Class 28- Games, Toys and Sporting Games

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 Pharmaceuticals in Class 5 and Dental Instruments and Apparatus for Class 10, 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.
