General Overview
About CPIPS 2021

The revised Patent Law of China will be officially implemented on June 1, 2021, and the drug patent linkage system (mechanism for early drug dispute resolution) and patent term compensation system of concern to the industry will likewise go into effect soon. In accordance with the implementation of the Patent Law, the NMPA and CNIPA drafted and issued the Measures for the Implementation of the Early Resolution Mechanism for Drug Patent Disputes (Interim) (Draft for Solicitation of Comments) on September 11, 2020; the Supreme People's Court issued the Provisions on Several Issues Concerning the Application of Law in the Trial of Patent Civil Cases Involving Drug Marketing Review and Approval (Draft for Solicitation of Comments) on October 29, and the CNIPA issued the Measures for Administrative Adjudication of Early Settlement Mechanism on Drug Patent Disputes (Draft for Solicitation of Comments) in February. At present, the final implementation measures, judicial interpretations and administrative adjudication measures are in the process of formulating/soliciting comments. Earlier this year, the new revisions to the patent review guidelines further modified and improved the review standards in the field of biomedicine such as supplementing experimental data, creative judgment, and antibody drug review. This fully reflects the current efficacious measures taken by China to promote pharmaceutical innovation, strengthen intellectual property protection, and promote the health of its citizens.

However, there are still many controversies in the industry about the mechanism for early resolution of drug patent disputes, patent term compensation, and modification and implementation of review guidelines, while both opportunities and challenges exist for different innovative bodies within China. In this context, the "Sixth China Pharma Intellectual Property Summit" organized by YIP Events & IP ForeFront will be held in Beijing from September 16 to 17, 2021, with the theme of "New Kinetic Energy Stimulates New Vitality".
