In China, the Trademark is designated by the two symbols, ‘R’ and ‘TM’. The Trademark symbol ‘TM’ is a provisional symbol, used for applied but undetermined Trademarks before the Trademark Certificate. It acts as a warning symbol for potential infringers that the application, to claim the trademark is under process. The trademark symbol ‘R’ signifies the registered trademark. Once the application gets approved by the government, the ‘R’ (®) mark can be used by the proprietor for 10 years.

A registered trademark is valid for a period of ten years and may be renewed for a further period of ten years on the payment of renewal fees.

The trademark agencies will submit the filing paper for you online (for the company applicant) or by mail (for the individual applicant).

What is Trademark Classification in China?

China follows the NICE Classification for trademark classes. The Nice Classification is an international classification of goods and services for the purpose of registering a trademark. The Trademark classification system consists of 45 classes; 01-34 includes goods and 35-45 includes services. In other words, you have to register for the Trademark only under the 45 classes in China.

According to the Madrid Agreement, applicants who have filed trademark applications in foreign countries can use them as the filing basis for the China Trademark applications. As long as the Trademark application for the same trademark is filed within six months, the applicant can claim priority based on the foreign filing date, allowing them the benefit of the earlier filing date in their China application as well. If the overseas registration of trademarks not through the Madrid system shall not fall within the governing scope of the present measures.


I have registered the Trademark in English in China, do I need to register the Trademark in the Chinese Language?

Yes. The official language of Mainland China is simplified Chinese Characters. If you want to protect your brands, you’d better also register the Chinese Homophones and Synonym Trademark in the same classes. Meanwhile, the Trademark Chinese Language belongs to another Trademark.


How to Check the Availability of the Desired Trademark?

You can search the online Trademark Free Search Engine to check the availability of the desired trademark. And if you want to register the Trademark, our attorney will analyze the pass rate of the brand for Trademark Registration.


Can I Apply for an Existing Registered Trademark but in a Different Class?

Yes, you can apply for the existing Trademark which is already registered but in a different class. However, the situation is different in the case of Famous Trademarks. You cannot apply for the existing Famous Trademark even in the different classes. This trademark application will have a high probability of getting objected to.


What about the same or similar trademarks applied on the same day?

  • Apply to the priority of use principle, according to the notice of the National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA), applicants should hand in evidence of the date when they first used this trademark in 30 days.
  • If the applicants first used the trademark on the same day or they did not use it at all, they need to negotiate and come to a conclusion about whom the trademark belongs to. Certainly, you could negotiate with the other applicant. That means,  if there’s a conclusion, the agreement should be sent to China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA) in 30 days. Similarly, if there’s no outcome of the negotiation, either with the supervision of the Trademark Office, the applicants draw lots, or the Trademark Office brings in a verdict.

What if the applicant changes the trademark name or graphics, or the minor item?

Normally, it should be refiled as a new trademark and the applicant should apply again.

I am glad that you have received the Trademark Certificate. We will help you obtain it as quickly as possible within 6 months. Unfortunately, the other Figurative mark you applied for was rejected by CNIPA. But when you choose, you have chosen Basic Trademark Application, which is also the cheapest service. Please understand. Of course, it is important to choose the Trademark Search Report before applying, as this is the best solution! Attorney from GWBMA will personally come to help you. Thank you for your high evaluation!
