Can collective marks be registered in Japan?

Yes, collective marks can be registered in Japan.

Collective marks are normally determined as signs or marks which characterize the geographical origin, material, mode of manufacture or other common attributes of goods or services of different enterprises using a collective mark. The owner of the collective mark may be either an association of members, any other entity, public institution, or a cooperative.

The owner of the collective mark normally fixes the regulations concerning the use of the collective mark and is responsible for ensuring the compliance with certain standards by its members. Thus, the function of the collective mark is to inform the public about certain particular features of the product for which the collective mark is used.
