Trademark Registration

Protect Your Trademark

Boardroom’s team of professionals monitor and protect your brands.

Intellectual property is critical for the success of any business in China; however there is no single solution to protecting intellectual property in Asia. China employs a “first to file” system for trademark registration. Companies should first register their trade name, logo and service marks with the China Trademark Office even before setting up a company in China.

The Chinese trademark office follows the 10th edition of the NICE Classification in addition to a list of goods and services maintained by the Chinese Trademarks Office.

The registration of the trademark is valid for a period of 10 years and renewable every 10 years. An application for renewing a trademark registration can be filed at any time during the 6 months prior to the expiration of the registration/last renewal validity. Late renewal is also possible after the expiry and within 6 months from the validity date.
