Mr Daren Tang, Chief Executive of IPOS, and Dr Shen Changyu, Commissioner of SIPO, signed an agreement on 17 September 2017 to extend the Patent Prosecution Highway (PPH) arrangement between both offices.
The PPH is a work-sharing programme where patent applicants can rely on the examination results issued by one office to accelerate their patent applications filed in another office. The PPH arrangement with SIPO started on 1 September 2013 and will now be extended to 31 August 2019. With this extension, applicants can continue to enjoy the benefits of obtaining corresponding patents faster and more efficiently.
