Trademark Class 18: Leather Goods

According to NICE Classification, Trademark Class 18 is opted to register a trademark for leather goods.

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 18 includes mainly leather, leather imitations, travel goods not included in other class and saddlery.

  • Leather and imitations of leather, and goods made of these materials and not included in other classes animal skins, hides
  • Trunks and travelling bags
  • Umbrellas and parasols
  • Walking sticks
  • Whips, harness and saddlery

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 18 may register in these other classes too.

If you are not sure while choosing Class 18 for your product, you also consider the following “Related Classes”: Class 25- Clothing, Class 14- Precious Metals, Class 35- Advertising and Business Services, Class 44- Medical and vet services and Class 42- Science and Technology.

Example of Class 18 includes AMERICAN TOURISTER under Class 16 and Class 18, PATAGONIA under Class 18 and Class 25.

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 Chemicals in Class 1 and Rubber 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.
