New rules for settling IPR issues

New mediation rules on intellectual property disputes concerning trademark and design owners in China and the European Union came into force on Wednesday.

The rules are part of a new mediation mechanism for intellectual property dispute settlement between the two sides. On Wednesday, the mechanism was jointly launched by the Shanghai Commercial Mediation Center and the Boards of Appeal of European Union Intellectual Property Office.

Besides the International Commercial Intellectual Property Co-Mediation Rules, there are also the Co-Mediation Agreement, the Confidentiality Statement and the Statement of Co-Mediators.

This mechanism provides an efficient and convenient way to settle disputes between enterprises in Europe and China.

The co-mediation mechanism emphasizes the standardization, confidentiality and neutrality of mediation, and fully reflects the broader, deeper and higher level of cooperation in the field of intellectual property dispute settlement between EU-China-based parties.

The EUIPO BoA is an independent decision-making body within the EUIPO. It hears and adjudicates EU trademark and design disputes involving parties from all over the world.
