Trademark Registration – Classification Guide – Class 37 in Japan

I’ve decided to start a construction industry. I’ve prepared a high-impact service name and logo for my construction industry, and I want to register it as a trademark to prevent others from copying it.

Then you need to remember to designate Class 37, which includes “construction”! Class 37 includes many services in the field of construction and services related to the repair and maintenance of various goods. Let’s check it out.

Considering the future development of services in the construction industry, it would be better to designate other services in Class 37. If they are in the same class, the cost is the same, but can we also designate other services, such as “architectural design” in Class 37…?

Class 37 is a classification for services in the field of construction, services for repair and maintenance of various goods, etc.

Class 37 mainly includes services in the field of construction and services related to the repair and maintenance of various goods.

In addition to construction, it may be easier to understand if we associate it with services familiar to us in our daily lives, such as “repair of bicycles”, “furniture restoration”, “shoe repair”, “repair of personal ornaments”, “window cleaning”, and so on.
