China Trademark Classification
China Trademark Classification is divided into Goods and services classes (same as Nice Classification) and subclasses (peculiarity of the Chinese system). Briefly, in Chinese Trademark Classification, the Goods belongs to Class01 – Class34, and the Service belongs to Class35 – Class45.
Classification of goods and services
CHINA’S CLASSIFICATION is a system that all the goods and services that can be validly designated in a trademark application in China according to the relevant regulation from National Intellectual Property Administration (CPINA). Once the application is submitted, CPINA verifies each of the submitted documents. Based on its verification, CPINA will recommend if the application can be processed further or more documents or information is needed by them for moving ahead on the trademark registration process. Once CPINA has completed the document verification and is satisfied with the same, it starts the process of registering the trademark. The process is lengthy and takes time. The applicant can expect this process to take approximately 1 year.
The list of Trademark Classification of goods or services appearing in the class below are general indications relating to the fields to which, in principle, the goods or services belong. The China Trademark Classification List should therefore be consulted in order to ascertain the exact classification of each individual product or service.
