Your trademark serves to differentiate your goods and services from those of your potential competitors in the marketplace, so when you file a trade mark application, it is important that you indicate very clearly for which goods and/or services your trade mark will be used.
To make things easier, OHIM offers you EuroClass, a useful tool to assist you when filing your trade mark and when trying to organise your goods and services into the correct classes.
This tool helps you with the classification of goods and services, allowing you to compare the classification databases of the Participating Offices supplying data to EuroClass. When you search for a classification term in EuroClass, you will see in which Participating Office databases that term appears.
Lists of goods and services can be verified for acceptance by Participating Offices and, where no entry is found, it provides a list of similar terms in the classes searched. If you select a term from the OHIM database to include in your CTM application, you can guarantee that it will be automatically accepted by OHIM.
The latest version of the EuroClass tool incorporates the functions of the now obsolete EuroAce and EuroNice applications.
