TMclass – a tool for classifying goods and services

TMclass is a database maintained by the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) together with national authorities. The database contains tens of thousands of terms (indications of goods and services) in Finnish and Swedish approved by the Finnish Patent and Registration Office (PRH).

The Search term option is useful when you are not sure of the best way to describe your goods and services.

How to search:

  1. Choose the language from the drop down menu.
  2. Enter a description of your goods and services in the text box (search term), for example “real estate brokerage" or “kiinteistönvälitys" or “egendomsmäkleri".
  3. Press the search button.

You can only search for one term at a time with the Search term option.

If you enter multiple search words such as “babies napkins", the search engine looks for occurrences of both “babies" and “napkins" in any order. It does not look for classification descriptions with either “babies" or “napkins".

To include plurals in the search (“babies" and “baby"), enter the stem (“bab").

Go to TMclass.
