Yes, the lists of goods and services can vary depending on the country or region where you are seeking trademark registration. While the Nice Classification system provides a general framework for categorizing goods and services internationally, individual countries or regions may have their own specific requirements and variations.

Each country has the authority to customize and adapt the classification system to align with their local laws and practices. This can result in differences in the way goods and services are classified or described within specific jurisdictions. These variations can include the addition of specific subclasses, modifications to existing classes, or the inclusion of country-specific goods or services.
