China Daily (Hong Kong) - - IP SPECIAL - By WANG XIN

There’s a grow­ing stock­pile of patent fil­ings with the State In­tel­lec­tual Prop­erty Of­fice, but the back­log should be re­solved by a new pri­or­i­tized pro­cess­ing reg­u­la­tion, which is sched­uled to come into ef­fect on Tues­day.

As a re­sponse to the cen­tral gov­ern­ment’s call­ing for an im­proved busi­ness en­vi­ron­ment, stream­lined pro­ce­dures for ad­min­is­tra­tive ap­proval, and the boom­ing mar­ket, the Ad­min­is­tra­tive Mea­sures for Pri­or­ity Ex­am­i­na­tion of Patent Ap­pli­ca­tions is set to re­duce fil­ers’ bur­dens and im­prove the ef­fi­ciency of re­lated ad­min­is­tra­tive ser­vices, said Hu Wen­hui, SIPO spokesman, at a news conference last week.
