Classification of goods and services 

Trademark Class 40 - Treatment of materials

The following goods are classified under Class 40
Treatment of materials.

Explanatory Note
Class 40 includes mainly services not included in other classes, rendered by the mechanical or chemical processing, transformation or  production of objects or inorganic or organic substances, including custom manufacturing services. For the purposes of classification, the  production or manufacturing of goods is considered a service only in cases where it is effected for the account of another person to their order and specification. If the production or manufacturing is not being performed to fulfil an order for goods which meet the customer's particular needs, requirements, or specifications, then it is generally ancillary to the maker's primary commercial activity or goods in trade. If the substance or object is marketed to third parties by the person who processed, transformed or produced it, then this would generally not be considered a service. 

This Class includes, in particular:

• 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 custom manufacturing of goods to the order and specification of others (bearing in mind that certain offices require that the  goods produced be indicated), for example, custom manufacturing of automobiles.
This Class does not include, in particular:

• repair services (Cl. 37);
• certain customization services, for example, the custom painting of automobiles (Cl. 37).
