NICE 11 Classification of goods and services
What is the Nice 11 classification of goods and services for trademarks and where can I find a list of the classes of goods and services?
When you apply for a trademark, you must specify the goods and/or services you wish to protect your trademark for. These goods and services are split across 45 classes (categories) used internationally and known as the Nice 11 Classification of goods and services. Each extra class you apply for typically brings with it extra fees.
Once registered, you have the exclusive right to use your trademark in that country for the goods/services covered – this is the substance of a trademark registration.
The current (11th) edition was released in January 2017 and is referred to as Nice 11.
