The PPH Program between the JPO and the CNIPA Extended for Additional Five Years

Have you ever used the Patent Prosecution Highway (PPH)?

The Japan Patent Office (JPO) and the China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA) have agreed to extend the PPH pilot program for another 5 years from 1 November 2023.

This pilot program has been used by many users. Especially in recent years, the largest number of PPH requests with the JPO as the Office of Earlier Examination are filed to the CNIPA as the Office of Later Examination. You can continue to obtain patent rights in China faster by using the JPO–CNIPA PPH pilot program.

The JPO is currently implementing the PPH programs with 44 IP Offices in the world including the CNIPA. We hope you will take advantage of the PPH with the JPO as your "hub patent office"! Read more
