2009/8/31

It is learnt that China is revising the Trademark Law and will shorten the examination period of trademark registration from 36 months to 12 months in order to keep away vicious application and misuse. Meanwhile, China will set up credit record and credit grade appraisal for trademark agencies and agents.

According to the goal defined in the opinions on implementing trademark strategies released by the State Administration for Industry and Commerce (SAIC), till the year 2020, China will reach the international advanced level in trademark registration, use, protection and management, the amount of trademarks registered in other countries will be in line with the status of China in foreign trade, the share of the export products and service with independent trademarks will be raised in foreign trade and trademarks will become a support for Chinese enterprises in participating in market competition and carrying out the strategy of "Going out".
