Announcement of changes in the names and search reference for designated use of goods and services in applications for trademark registration

  • Date Posted:2016-08-08

A total of 64 revisions, 6 deletions, and 17 additional revisions to names or notes on groupings were recently made to TIPO’s names and search reference for designated use of goods/services in applications for trademark registration. This was done to stay current with the Nice Classification (NSL 10-2016), which is updated periodically. These changes took effect on July 1, 2016. The classification and names of goods/services of designated use on TIPO’s trademark e-filing system were also simultaneously updated.

Applicants e-filing their applications for trademark registration after July 1 are advised to download the changes to avoid inconsistency when filling out the names of designated goods/services, and thereby losing the NT$300 fee waiver. These changes were available in the Trademark Gazette (Vol. 43 No. 13) published on the same effective date.
