  • only the number of the goods class or service class,
  • a reference to all goods or services included in a specific class,
  • a reference to the alphabetical list of the Nice Classification, or
  • the entire class heading of a goods class or service class as it is presented in the Nice Classification, and the mark was applied for before 1 October 2012.
