  • Form T1 is for Request for search of records and/or Request for preliminary advice on registrability. Request for search of records and Request for preliminary advice are two separate requests. The former request is concerned with whether there are other trade marks that resemble the trade mark in respect of the goods and / or services specified in the request. The latter request is concerned with whether the trade mark itself is registrable in respect of the goods and / or services specified in the request and it does not include search of records for resembling trade marks.
  • When completing Part 06 of the Form T1, please consider if any of your goods and/or services are those set out in the table(s) on the webpage “Commonly used descriptions of goods or services and their class numbers” and if yes, you may mark the box against the relevant descriptions in the table(s) to indicate that the description of goods or services is to be included in the Form T1 you submit. If not, please complete Part 06 by specifying your goods and/or services and their class number(s). Please note that the table(s) are not exhaustive and do not cover all descriptions of goods or services and their class numbers under the Nice Classification.
  • The Registry will process your request in respect of the specified goods and/or services falling under the appropriate class(es) in the Nice Classification , subject to your payment of the specified fee for the number of class(es) of goods and/or services to which the request relates. For example, in relation to request in respect of the goods “cosmetics, clothing” in Class 3 and the fee for a single class of goods/services has been paid only, the Registry will process the request in respect of “cosmetics” only since “clothing” belongs to Class 25 rather than Class 3 according to the Nice Classification.
