Trade Mark Classifications

When making a trade mark application, it is required to list the goods and/or services for which you intend to use your trade mark. The UK Intellectual Property Office lists goods and services in categories or an arrangement of 'classes'. Below is a sample list provided by them. The list below does not include everything in a particular class, but will give you an idea of the sort of goods or services that belong to each class. Class 1 to 34 are for Goods, while Services are in classes 35 to 45.

It is not uncommon to find completely unrelated items listed under the same class.
