REQUEST FOR THE RECORDING OF A LIMITATION OF THE LIST OF GOODS AND SERVICES (Rule 25 of the Common Regulations)
This request may be presented directly to the International Bureau by the holder or through the Office of the Contracting Party of the holder.
The goods and services affected by this limitation may be the subject of a subsequent designation and therefore will continue to be taken into account in the calculation of the supplementary fees at the time of renewal. If these goods and services are to be permanently removed from the International Register, the recording of a cancellation should be requested instead (form MM8). In such a case, those goods and services may no longer be the subject of a subsequent designation and will not be taken into account in the calculation of the supplementary fees at the time of renewal.
One single form may be used to request the recording of one limitation for several international registrations, provided that the holder is the same and the same limitation applies to all designated Contracting Parties or to the same designated Contracting Parties for each of the international registrations concerned.
If the limitation is not the same in respect of a designated Contracting Party, the recording of this limitation must be requested in a separate form.

5 GOODS AND SERVICES
NOTE:Any class covered by the international registration(s)indicated in item 1 that is not mentioned below remains as recorded in the International Register:
– if you want to request the recording of a limitation for one particular class in respect of the designated Contracting Parties mentioned in item 4, please provide the relevant class number and the complete new limited list of goods and services of this class under item (a);
– however, if you want to delete one or more entire classes in respect of those Contracting Parties, please indicate the class number(s) under item (b).
You can find indications of terms of goods and services that are pre-accepted by the International Bureau in the Madrid Goods & Services Manager (MGS) at www.wipo.int/mgs/.
Please make consistent use of a semicolon (;) to clearly separate the goods and services indications in your list, e.g.:
35 Advertising; compilation of statistics; commercial information agencies.
Please use font “Courier New” or “Times New Roman”, size 12 pt, or above. If the limitation concerns changes in a given class, please provide below the relevant class number and the complete new limited list of goods and services of this class (instead of the goods or services that you wish to delete from the currently recorded list). It is important to provide clear information on the remaining scope, to ensure correct recording of the limitation in the International Register. The new limited list will be recorded for the Contracting Parties indicated in item 4.
Example 1: If the international registration contains, in class 25, “clothing; footwear; headgear” and you want to limit certain designations to clothing and headgear, you should indicate that the new list in respect of those designations is “clothing; headgear”.
Example 2: If you want to keep certain footwear, you should clearly indicate the remaining scope, including the kind of footwear you want to keep in the designation; for instance “clothing; leather shoes, leather boots, leather sandals; headgear”.
Example 3: If you want to limit footwear to sandals only, you could indicate that the new list is “clothing; sandals; headgear”.
Example 4: If you want to exclude sandals from footwear, you could indicate that the new list is “clothing; footwear, except sandals; headgear”.
(NOTE:If a class number is indicated here, it will be understood that the designation of the Contracting Parties indicated in item 4 no longer contains this class. Any class mentioned under item 5(a), above, must not be indicated here.)
