Searching

Searching can be activated by clicking on the Search link in the publication related documents area. The Search area is displayed, which enables you to search through the data of the selected classification using a word-based search.

Basic search using words

Simply enter a few words into the search field.

The search engine will show you all indications of goods or services that contain any of the given words. If there are several words found in a single indication, these “best hits” will be presented separately.

Basic search using truncation characters

A truncation character (*) can be used in the search phrase. The truncation character can be placed at the beginning or at the end of any word in the search field. ( e.g.: metal* sign* , *metal*).

Advanced search using logical operators

The logical AND, OR and NOT operators, along with parentheses, can be used to phrase your search expression.

Examples:

·        abrasive and paper

·        abrasive not paper

·        abrasive and (cloth or paper)

You can also use double quotation marks to search for an expression.

Example:

·        “safety cashboxes”

Searching for class, subclass and category numbers, serial numbers and basic numbers

You can enter the number in the search field and you can also combine it with words.

Numbers under ten have a 0 before them, e.g. to search for class 1, use 01.

Do not use full stops or hyphens between numbers of classes and subclasses or between numbers of categories, divisions and sections.

Examples:

·        Nice Cassification: 01 and abrasive*

·        Locarno Classification : 0101 and past*

·        Vienna Classification: 010105
