Hong Kong to have A New Patent System

20 Mar 2013

HONG KONG –The Hong Kong Government has appointed an advisory committee to review the patent system. The key recommendations made by the committee are summarized as follows:

- Establishing an “original grant” patent system with substantive examination of applications,
- Retaining the “short-term” patent system with suitable refinements,
- Regulating the regime on patent agency services.

The Intellectual Property Department of Hong Kong Government has released in February 2013 its initial report related to the patent system in Hong Kong.

The Hong Kong Government and Legislative Council will be responsible to convert the recommendations into law.
