Measures to Improve eServices of CNIPA

On 5 September 2022, the China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA) issued a notice to further strengthen digitisation of trademark reviews. CNIPA will fully move all rejection appeal cases online. From 1 November 2022, trademark agencies should submit electronic applications through the online trademark rejection appeal system and no longer file paper applications.

Furthermore, on 20 September 2022, CNIPA published a series of measures to further improve electronic services and facilitate trademark registration. These measures include, for example, optimising the file upload function, formulating and issuing guidelines for making requests and responding to Office notices online, as well as organising a series of training courses to educate trademark representatives how to use the system.
