Trademark Class 40

Trademark Class 40 Treatment of Materials

A thorough explanation of Class 40 under the Trademark Filing Classification. Each class that must be used to apply for or register a trademark corresponds to a certain type of products or services. The services that fall within Class 40 of trademark classification are fully covered in this post.

Trademark Class 40

Trademark Class 40 deals with services that are not covered by other classes and are provided by the mechanical, chemical, or biological processing, alteration, or transformation of things, inorganic materials, or substances. Only when processing or transformation is carried out on behalf of another person is the mark treated as a service mark for classification purposes. In all instances where the substance or item is marketed by the individual who processed or modified it, a mark is regarded as a trade mark.

The Following Goods Are Also Classified Under Class 40

  • Services relating to transformation of an object or substance and any process involving a change in its essential properties (for example, dyeing a garment); consequently, a maintenance service, although usually in Class 37, is included in Class 40 if it entails such a change (for example, the chroming of motor vehicle bumpers);
  • Services of material treatment which may be present during the production of any substance or object other than a building; for example, services which involve cutting, shaping, polishing by abrasion or metal coating.

The Following Goods must NOT Be Classified Under Class 40

  • Repair services.
