Can you modify classes on an existing trademark?

CEO & Legal Mind

Generally, once you submit your application to the IP office, you can't modify the classes.

The only exceptions might occur if:

  • you need to drop a class during the opposition process due to the existence of a conflicting trademark in the same class, or
  • you need to drop a class during renewal (if you are not providing the said goods/services anymore).

In general, extending the scope of your application is not possible.
