An application for trademark registration requires the classification of designated goods and services. The classification of certain goods has been changed for reasons including the amendment of the International Classification of Goods and Services and changes in business conditions. For example, under the amendment, "ski wax," which was previously classified under Class 28, has been moved to Class 4, and "smartphone" has been newly added to Class 9. Companies will need to confirm the new classification of goods for their applications for trademark registration filed on or after January 1, 2017.
