Related Classes

When registering for a trademark you may find that the product or service that you offer falls under one or more of the international trademark classes. There are classes that are closely related to class 2 items, and there may be some crossover when identifying the appropriate class. Some of the classes commonly linked to class 2 items include:

-Class 3 – cosmetic and cleaning preparation.

-Class 1 – chemicals.

-Class 16 – paper goods and printed matter.

-Class 17 – rubber goods

There are also instances where you may be required to register trademark under multiple classes. For example, if your class 2 products are being used for building construction or repairs, you could also need to register it under class 37, construction, and repair services, as well. Or if you are using your class 2 products for dyeing or the treatment of clothing, you will also have to register under class 40, which covers the printing and treatment of materials.

It is also important to note that even if your trademark fits in the class 2 category, there still might be a class that fits them better. If you find yourself stuck between two classes that could equally fit your product you should consult an attorney to determine which WIPO standards will best apply.
