Are there any features at drawing up of list of goods / services on IC classes?

Are there any features at drawing up of list of goods / services on IC classes?

Certainly yes. Basically they concern terminology that is used in the list of goods and services, namely the terminology must maximally coincide with the terminology in the last IC edition. The new or rare terms which are absent in IC must have an explanation. Also the generalized list of goods/services is not recommended. For example, the use only of heading of any IC classes. The fact is that a heading cannot include specific separate rubrics of the goods in some cases . In particular the heading of 10 IC class of the goods as sterile sheets (surgical); blankets electric, for medical purposes; elastic stockings for surgical purposes. The heading of 22 IC class does not include such rubrics as bottle envelopes of straw and 39 IC class does not include electricity distribution etc.


More/LessAlso generalized names of goods / services (ready-made garments, the sports goods, lease, intermediary services etc.) can concern to various classes of International Classification of Goods and Services and must be concretized. However, if the applicant produces the big assortment of the goods that have the general area of use it is necessary to use their generalized name, for example, clothes. However, it is not allowed to join together versatile goods under the generalized name (clothes: protective suits for aviators - 9 IC class and suits - 25 IC class). At the same time the list of goods/services mustn't be too much detailed as it can generate the situation that is called “Procrustean bed”. There are many other nuances and features which are necessary to take into account at drawing up of the list of goods/services. They basically are well-known to the patent attorney, experts, and also to those who encounter with this problem in the work .
