Trademark Classes

A trademark classification is a way by which documents pertaining to Trademark such as trademark and service mark applications are arranged by trademark examiners according to the description and scope of the types of goods or services to which the marks apply. Before filing the trademark registration application, it is necessary to identify the classes in which you want to seek the protection. However, the goods and services are classified in 45 classes.


For the purpose of trademark registration, trademark registry has classified the goods and services in 45 classes. The first 34 classes (Class 1 to 34) deal with the specifications of goods and the rest 11 classes (Class 35 to 45) deal with the specification of services. Each of the trademark class represents a different set of goods and services.
