When applying to register your mark you must ensure that the goods/services are registered in all classes that you wish to trade within. The 45 classes are split into two parts. Class 1-34 are for the registration of goods, class 35-45 are for the registration of service.
Trademarks can get quite complicated and once a mark has been registered it is no longer possible to add a class. Instead, you would pay the full registration costs on top of the extra classification fees. If you are having problems with trademark classifications don’t hesitate to contact us with any enquiries or for general assistance.
