Examination Every trade mark is examined by IP Australia, the regulatory body for trade
mark registrations in Australia to ensure it meets the requirements for it to be registered in
Australia. If there are any issues raised by IP Australia during the examination of your application, we
will forward the report with our advice and, if any substantial action is required, our team will quote
you a fee for your approval.
Classes When applying for a trade mark you are required to nominate which goods or
services you want your trade mark to cover. There are 45 official classes of goods and services, with a
government fee of $250 per class and
our professional fee of $180 for every
class. We indicate your main trade mark class, and other classes could be important to you, we will
discuss with you whether you want to proceed in the additional classes.
