Trademark Class 5: Pharmaceuticals

According to NICE Classification, Trademark Class 5 is opted to register a trademark for pharmaceuticals and other preparations for medical or veterinary purposes.

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 5 includes mainly pharmaceuticals and other preparations for medical or veterinary purposes.

Why Should We Opt For TM Class 5?

You would choose Trademark Class 5 if you were registering any of these types of goods:

  • Sanitary preparations for personal hygiene, other than toiletries
  • Deodorants other than for human beings and animals
  • Dietary supplements, intended to supplement a normal diet or to have health benefits
  • Meal replacements, dietetic food and beverages, adapted for medical or veterinary use
  • Cigarettes without tobacco, for medical purposes

Related Classes

A related trademark class is one that is related to another class; this is due to the Indian Trademark Office

If you are not sure while choosing Class 5 for your product, you also consider the following “Related Classes”: Class 3- Cleaning Substances, Class 1- Chemicals, Class 10- Medical Supplies, Class 42- Science and Technology Services, Class 35- Advertising and Business Services, Class 44- Medical and Vet Services.

Examples of Class 5 includes RANEXA under Class 5, WELHCOL under Class 5, ONGLYZA under Class 5 and Class 16.

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 Industrial Oil in Class 4 and Machine tools & Parts in Class 7, 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.
