IP Australia adopts Madrid Goods and Services list for trademark applications

IP Australia adopts Madrid Goods and Services list for trademark applications

On March 28, 2024, IP Australia officially adopted the Madrid Goods and Services list (Madrid List), replacing its previous trademark picklist, the Trade Marks Goods and Services list.

With more extensive goods and services descriptions, the Madrid List provides more options for trademark applicants. This is particularly useful for applicants filing TM Headstart applications, which require the use of the picklist, as IP Australia’s previous picklist was relatively limited.

TM Headstart is IP Australia’s pre-application service for first-time trademark applicants. It evaluates a first-timer’s trademark application before he or she proceeds with the formal application and provides feedback. With the feedback, TM Headstart allows applicants to revise their application to have greater chances of securing protection for their trademarks. Read more
