BEIJING – China has established or is working to establish 25 service centers to provide fast responses to intellectual property rights (IPR) issues, the country’s IPR authorities announced on Tuesday.

The China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA) recently approved three fast IPR service centers in three counties, according to the CNIPA.

The fast IPR public service centers aim to provide county-level industry clusters with faster pre-review processes, confirmation and rights protection on IPR-related issues.

Some regions are undergoing industrial transformations, upgrading from labor-intensive to knowledge-intensive industries. Faster and more efficient local IPR services will empower these regions to provide better IPR-related services, such as a fast IPR review process for the physical designs of quick-selling products.

By 2023, China will have established a coordinated fast IPR protection system based on diversified service centers at all levels, according to a plan released by the CNIPA last year.
