The International Classification Of The Figurative Elements Of Marks (Vienna Classification):
The Classification constitutes a hierarchical system that proceeds from the general to the particular, dividing all figurative elements into categories, divisions, and sections. Where appropriate, explanatory notes have been introduced. They concern either a category as a whole (including all its divisions) or any given division or section. (vi) The sections are of two kinds. In addition to the main sections, there are auxiliary sections intended for figurative elements that are already covered by the main sections, but which it is considered useful to group according to a particular criterion for ease of anticipation searching.
Every category, division, and section has been given a number according to a special coding system. Every figurative element in a section is referred to by three numbers: the first, which may be any number from 1 to 29, denotes the category; the second, which may be any number from 1 to 19, the division; and the third, which may be any number from 1 to 30, the section.
The number of divisions and sections varies according to the categories and divisions to which they belong. Within the divisions and sections, certain numbers have been left vacant in order to permit the introduction of new divisions or sections when necessary.
Categories are divided into divisions, divisions are divided into sections and the last is auxiliary sections. This publication contains the seventh edition of the Classification, which comprises a total of 29 categories, 145 divisions, 806 main sections, and 903 auxiliary sections. How many figurative elements each Trademark, must classify each element.

The sign is similar to the allopathic mark and the goods and services are identical (of the same type) to the goods or services bearing the allopathic mark.
