CNIPA announced this week that paper trademark registration certificates will no longer be issued from January 1, 2022. For trademark applications filed by paper filing, CNIPA will issue a notice with a URL and QR code where the applicant will be able to download e-commerce trademark registration certificate. For the application filed through the electronic filing system, the registration certificate can be viewed and downloaded from the CNIPA online service system. There will be a transition period from October 15 to December 31 where CNIPA will issue both a paper certificate and a notice of receipt for trademark registration certificates.
