TRADEMARK CLASS 6: Common metals and their alloys

A Trademark classification is used to make it easier to register all trademarks and service marks in a variety of fields with national and international trademark offices across the world. The International (Nice) Classification of Goods and Services divides different goods and services into 45 Trademark Classes (1 to 34 cover goods, and 35 to 45 cover services). The Indian Trademark Registry uses this categorization to classify trademarks. Every class requires a unique registration, and it is critical to select the appropriate class when submitting an application for trademark registration. While choosing an acceptable class for your goods and services, you will conduct a trademark search. This is a classification of almost 80,000 products and services.
