Beijing: Customs goes online


A new system by the General Administration of Customs that will begin on March 1 will for the first time enable intellectual property owners to submit all their records online. Currently, IP rights owners must provide both digital information and paper documents to the administration when seeking customs protection. Officials said the method will help increase efficiency and reduce errors.
