Suggestions for Classifications of Goods & Services

The Indian Trademark Registry invites suggestions for publication of Classification of Goods and Services issued in a notification on August 16, 2012.

The Registrar of Trade Marks has proposed to publish the classification of goods and services for the purpose of registration of trademarks, under the provision of Section 7 and Section 8 of the Trade Marks Act 1999.

The Registrar shall classify goods and services, as far as possible, in accordance with the International system of classification of trade marks and the Registrar may publish in the prescribed manner an alphabetical index of such classification.

The Registry intends to include the goods and services of the Indian origin which is not mentioned in the Nice Classification, the international system of classification of goods and services which is currently being followed by the Trademark Registry. It has therefore invited suggestions of all the stakeholders including advocates, agents and general public and has requested to point out the goods and services of Indian origin as well as the relevant class for such goods.
