What is a class in relation to a trademark or trade name?

When you request a trademark or trade name you have to indicate which products and/or services or activities you wish to protect with said distinctive sign.

The International (Nice) Classification has been drawn up for this purpose and consists of 45 classes, each one covering a group of related products or services. At a European level there is a harmonised classification of products and services, a repository of validated classification terms which is used by all the offices in the EU, including the EUIPO.
