The Importance of Classes in Trademark Registration

Gaining knowledge of trademark classes is essential when registering a trademark for your company. Trademark classes enable the classification and protection of your brand across various markets and industries. In this blog, we’ll go into the reasons these classes are important and how they affect the trademark registration procedure.

What are trademark classes?

Trademark classes are categories established to group different types of goods and services. There are 45 classes in total: 34 for goods and 11 for services. When you apply for a trademark, you need to specify which class or classes your product or service belongs to. This classification system helps with trademark organization and prevents confusion among similar marks across various industries.

How to Choose the Right Class

Choosing the right class for your trademark is essential. Here are a few steps to help you decide:

1. Identify your products or services.

Make a detailed list of the goods or services your business offers.

2. Use a classification tool.

Use online tools or consult with a trademark attorney to match your products or services to the appropriate classes.

3. Consider future expansion.

Think about where your business might expand in the future. Registering for additional classes now can save you the hassle and cost of reapplying later.

4. Consult a professional.

Trademark attorneys specialise in this field and can provide valuable guidance to ensure you choose the right classes for comprehensive protection.


Trademark classes play a vital role in the trademark registration process. They assist you in clearly identifying and protecting your brand in the appropriate market. By effectively understanding and leveraging trademark classes, you can ensure strong protection for your business, avoid conflicts, and make strategic decisions for future growth. Always consult a trademark professional to ensure a smooth and efficient process.
