Rapporteur's consolidated proposal for removal of the word "miscellaneous" from the English version of the IPC October 16th, 2003 Place Existing text Rapporteur's original Comments or Rapporteur's opinion Consolidated proposal proposal counterproposals Catchword CONTAINER(S) - CONTAINER(S) for US: R does not agree with US - CONTAINER(S) for index miscellaneous household household use A47G CONTAINER(S) - entries for residual places are household use A47G CONTAINER(S) A47G household CONTAINER(S) not helpful in the Catchword 29/00 not otherwise provided for Index. In the context of the A47G 29/00 Catchword Index it is not clear whether "not otherwise provided for" relates to the CI or the IPC. Catchword SUPPORTS - SUPPORTS for US: R does not agree with US - SUPPORTS for household index miscellaneous SUPPORTS household use A47G SUPPORTS - SUPPORTS entries for residual places are use A47G for household use A47G for household use not not helpful in the Catchword 29/00 otherwise provided for Index. In the context of the A47G 29/00 Catchword Index it is not clear whether "not otherwise provided for" relates to the CI or the IPC.

The term "equipment" of the Subclass Index is used for hand appliances and hand tools (5/00) and for machines (61/00). The term "mechanism" is used also for machines, but additionally for means or mechanisms. Our proposal is to revise both entries and to combine them: OTHER EQUIPMENT OR MECHANISMS FOR SHOEMAKING OR REPAIRING... 5/00, 61/00, 111/00 to 119/00. A43D Miscellaneous Other mechanisms for RO: We agree Other mechanisms for Guidance mechanisms for shoemaking shoemaking heading shoemaking before 111/00 Place Existing text Rapporteur's original Comments or Rapporteur's opinion Consolidated proposal proposal counterproposals A44C 25/00 Miscellaneous fancy ware Fancy ware for US: See "General question 1" of Fancy ware for personal for personal wear, e.g. personal wear, not Fancy ware for personal Annex 8. wear, not provided for in crosses, crucifixes, provided for in groups wear not provided for by groups 1/00 to 19/00 or charms 1/00 to 19/00 or 23/00, other main groups of this 23/00, e.g. crosses, e.g. crosses, crucifixes, subclass, e.g. crosses, crucifixes, charms charms crucifixes, charms A47B MISCELLANEOUS OTHER FURNITURE, RO: We consider changing Rapporteur sees the point DETAILS OR subclass FURNITURE, OTHER the subclass index title into made by RO, the difference ACCESSORIES FOR index MISCELLANEOUS ACCESSORIES FOR “Other furniture, other between "details" and FURNITURE 88/00 to ACCESSORIES FOR FURNITURE 95/00, accessories for furniture "accessories" is not very 97/00 FURNITURE 95/00, 97/00 97/00 95/00, 97/00" as affecting clear.

For the Subclass Index, our proposal is as follows: ACCESSORIES FOR FURNITURE...95/00 OTHER FURNITURE, OTHER ACCESSORIES FOR FURNITURE...97/00 Place Existing text Rapporteur's original Comments or Rapporteur's opinion Consolidated proposal proposal counterproposals A47B 39/12 • Miscellaneous equipment • Other equipment for EP: We think the title should R agrees with EP and RO • Equipment for forms not for forms forms read: provided for in groups “Equipment for forms not 39/02 to 39/10 provided for in groups 39/02 to 39/10” Since there is no first-place priority rule in this area, it seems to be clearer to use such a wording. For example, when the subject matter concerns “equipment for adjustable forms”, we might want it to be classified in 39/02. RO: We would prefer the suggestions made by EPO A47B 97/00 Miscellaneous furniture; Furniture or US: R agrees with US, except Furniture or accessories Miscellaneous accessories accessories for Furniture or accessories "provided for in…" (see the for furniture, not for furniture furniture, not provided for furniture not provided Guide, paragraph 34) provided for in other for in groups 1/00 to for by other main groups groups of this subclass 96/00 of this subclass A47C31/00 Miscellaneous features in Details or accessories US: It should be discussed Details or accessories for connection with chairs, for chairs, beds or the Features in connection whether "Details and chairs, beds or the like, beds, or the like, e.g. like, not provided for in with chairs, beds, or the accessories", which is used in not provided for in other upholstery fasteners, groups 1/00 to 29/00, like not provided for by the subclass index, should be groups of this subclass, mattress protectors, e.g. upholstery other main groups of this used rather than the existing e.g. upholstery fasteners, stretching devices for fasteners, mattress subclass, e.g. upholstery wording. mattress protectors, mattress nets protectors, stretching fasteners, mattress stretching devices for devices for mattress protectors, stretching mattress nets nets devices for mattress nets Place Existing text Rapporteur's original Comments or Rapporteur's opinion Consolidated proposal proposal counterproposals A47G 29/00 Miscellaneous supports, Supports, holders or US: The US proposal is Supports, holders or holders, or containers for containers for Supports, holders or inaccurate, since 35/00 is containers for household household use (for drying household use, not containers for household residual to 29/00. use, not provided for in towels A47K 10/04; stands, provided for in groups use not provided for by groups 1/00 to 27/00 or racks, or the like for airing 1/00 to 27/00 or 33/00 other main groups of this 33/00 (for drying towels beds, garments, or the like, (for drying towels A47K subclass (for drying towels A47K 10/04; stands, racks, clothes, drying devices 10/04; stands, racks, or A47K 10/04; stands, racks, or the like for airing beds, D06F 57/00) the like for airing beds, or the like for airing beds, garments, or the like, garments, or the like, garments, or the like, clothes, drying devices clothes, drying devices clothes, drying devices D06F D06F 57/00) D06F 57/00) 57/00) A47J 43/00 Miscellaneous implements Implements for US: R agrees, but the relationship Implements for for preparing or holding preparing or holding Implements for preparing between 43/00 and 47/00 is preparing or holding food food, not provided for or holding food not ugly. food, not provided for in in groups 9/00 to 42/00 provided for by other main other groups of this or 44/00 groups of this subclass subclass GB: We prefer the US version since A47J 45/00 and 47/00 mention containers that could hold food. It is better and clearer to include them by referring to other main groups in the subclass, as US propose.
