GCC countries (Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia) require notarial confirmation or legalisation in order for priority documents and certified copies to be considered valid. The United States, China, Japan, India and Iran also require original documents.
We send documents with an original stamp and signature for the countries where this is required. NB! You must specify this in your order.

If you would like information about notarial confirmation and legalisation, you can read this on the government website (

Trademark cases

Classes for trademark cases are in Norwegian. We do not translate classes into English as only the Norwegian version is valid in Norway. If you need an English version, please send a translation of classes to us along with your order and we will confirm that the translation is correct.

To find the correct English classes, we recommend that you use the Product Selector. This tool can be used to translate selected terms from Norwegian to English and vice versa. You choose the goods and services in the Product Selector and click save/translate. The Norwegian text will then be translated into English.
