The IPI's classification tool helps you to create the list of goods and services (LGS). You can use the classification tool for:
- Searching for accepted goods and services
- Correctly classifying goods and services
- Translating individual terms or complete lists into German, French, Italian and English.
The classification tool checks your terms for conformity with the IPI's database as well as with the terms of the International Nice Classification. By using the Classification Tool, you can significantly speed up your application.
