Classify List

Classify list of terms

Information about this search option:

The Classify List feature is provided to assist you in grouping and classifying an existing list of goods and services according to the Nice Classification system for the purpose of filing a new or revised trademark application with CIPO.

This function will search your list against the Manual, assign the corresponding Nice class for the terms that are found in the Manual and sort your list by Nice class.

There are two ways to submit your list of terms to be classified:
(a) You can copy and paste your list in the text field or;
(b) You can import a text file (. txt) by clicking on the button "Import List".

IMPORTANT: The Manual consists of a representative listing of pre-approved goods and services and is not meant to be exhaustive.

You will most likely need to reorganize your list of terms prior to submitting for classification in order to optimize the results returned for the goods and services found in the Manual. The list must be worded in such a way as to indicate clearly the nature of the goods or services and to allow each item to be classified. For further assistance on how to re-organize your list, please consult the help page of the Classify List section.
