TIPO Announces Updates to the Trademark Classification for Goods and Services

The Taiwan Intellectual Property Office has made adjustments to the designated goods and services names in trademark applications in response to the latest (12th) edition of the Nice Classification list. A total of 422 items have been added and 56 items have been deleted. An additional 15 modifications have been made to class/subclass names or annotations, as well as 25 corrections. The aforementioned changes took effect on January 1, 2024. The list of designated goods/services categories and names will be updated on the online trademark filing system as well. The official timeline of website updates will be published on the website of the TIPO Information Management Office. Applicants wishing to use the fast-track mechanism on the online trademark filing system after January 1, 2024, will be able to download the latest updates. This will ensure consistency between the designated goods/services names stated in the application and the content in the electronic filing system, avoiding discrepancies that could jeopardize eligibility for the fast-track mechanism, as well as associated fee reductions. Deep and Far Attorneys
