First Mediation Rules for International IP Disputes Released

On 29 October, the Mediation Center of the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT) released Mediation Rules for Intellectual Property Disputes.

It is the first set of rules in China aimed solely at the resolution of international IP disputes. The rules, comprised of five chapters, seek to align with international mediation principles. Based on the unique nature of IP disputes, the rules allow for technical investigations during the mediation processes.

Experts and institutions can be hired to provide technical consultation for technology-centered cases. Under the rules, parties involved in disputes are able to pick the language of their choice for mediation and even use a combination of alternative dispute resolution methods such as litigation and arbitration to protect their rights.

The rules became effective on November 1, 2021.
