Patents granted to Chinese and foreign inventors between 2002 and 2013.

The China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA; 国家知识产权局) is the patent and trademark office and primary intellectual property regulator of the People's Republic of China.

Naming

The agency was founded in 1980 as the Patent Office of the People's Republic of China, before changing its name to State Intellectual Property Office (SIPO) then to "National Intellectual Property Administration,"[1] and, in 2018, to "China National Intellectual Property Administration".[2][3]: 4 

History

SIPO established[when?] a database of patents granted for traditional Chinese medicine.[4]: 214 

As SIPO, the institution became the world's largest patent office in 2011.[3]: 4 

To streamline the patent application process for patentees filing under both the Chinese and United States systems, SIPO and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) established a Patent Prosecution Highway (PPH) pilot program on December 1, 2011.[5]: 141
