Taxonomy update 2016

    The changes to both the Group Titles and Class Scopes for 2016 were implemented and introduced in the Taxonomy of the Harmonised Database (HDB) in January 2016 in all EU languages with the collaboration of IP Offices.

    "Key rings and key chains" has been added as a separate group to clearly illustrate the existence of these goods within class 14. Furthermore, a number of Group titles have been reformulated to have a more specific and precise meaning, making these Group Titles acceptable for lists of goods and services and thereby available in both TMclass and e-filings connected to the HDB.
