Amended Trademark Law in Force


The Standing Committee of the National People's Congress announced the amendments to the Trademark Law on April 23, 2019. The fourth amendment to the Trademark Law entered into force on November 1, 2019.

The revisions intend to create an environment with better legal certainty and to avoid unfair competition. The amendment aims at combating bad faith applications by creating new grounds for challenge at all stages of criminal proceedings.

The State Administration for Market Regulation issued provisions on the Regulation of Trademark Application and Registration Behavior to facilitate the implementation of the amendments which will take effect from December 1, 2019.
