Q40. What is “Reclassification”?

A40. All trademark registrations filed prior to March 31,1992 under the former Japanese classification system must be reclassified according to the International Classification System which is now employed in Japan.

 A Request for Reclassification may be filed up to six months before or one year after the renewal deadline of a trademark registration. If reclassification is not requested, the registration may not be renewed again. No official fee is required.
