Classifying your goods and services
Goods and services are classified according to an international classification system. This system consists of 45 different classes (class 1-34 are for goods, and class 35-45 are service classes). Each class has a heading describing the goods or services included in this class.
Which goods and services should I choose?
You should choose the goods and services for which you are using your trademark today, or plan to use in the near future.
For example, if you are planning to use your own trademark for coffee, and for a café with the same name, you can set up your list in the following way.
- Class 30: Coffee
- Class 43: Café Services

Using the trademark
If you do not use the trademark for all the goods and services it is registered for within 5 years, others may submit a request to the Norwegian Industrial Property Office to have the trademark deleted from the trademark register for the goods or services for which the trademark is not being used.
