This will be an opportunity to refine your classification skills and learn about the Harmonised Database. Embedded in OHIM's online forms and in TMclass, this database is accepted by all IP offices around Europe and can help smooth the registration of your trade mark.


On 6 October, from 14.00 CET to 17.05 CET.

Why use the Harmonised Database

Using the Harmonised Database instead of providing your own list of goods and services can help smooth the registration process for your trade mark. First, your trade mark application will encounter fewer deficiencies as the goods and services it includes have already been accepted in previous applications made to OHIM.

The Harmonised Database is the world's largest multilingual database for goods and services. The terms it contains are pre-approved by all EU national and regional IP offices, including OHIM.

Whenever you select a term from the Harmonised Database, you can be sure it will be accepted when your application is examined. It will also mean that the term is already translated into all other EU languages (except Irish). Your application can therefore be processed more smoothly.
