International Patent Classification (Official Publication)
DesignClass is a tool that offers, in a web environment, a set of user-friendly features that can help users find product indications in the Harmonised Database that best match with the goods for which they want to register a design.
The Harmonised product indications database follows the same structure of classes and subclasses as the Locarno Classification. It contains not only its product indications but also many more that are accepted by EU IP Offices and the EUIPO.
The product indications come from Locarno, Eurolocarno and from EU IP Offices that have been using other product indications that are currently not listed in Locarno.
