As we mentioned in our earlier post “Spokesman of China Trademark Office: all delayed Trademark Registration Certificates will be delivered by the end of May“, “it is expected that all delayed Trademark Registration Certificates will be delivered to the trademark owners by the end of May.”
Now it is close to the end of May but it is still unknown to us whether all delayed Trademark Registration Certificates have been delivered to the trademark owners, or what the progress is.
On April 21, 2016, China Trademark Office published a new announcement on its website declaring that it will adopt a new method of certifying the registration of a China registered trademark, which is, it will print out the Trademark Filing Documents of the concerned trademark and affix a special seal on them to certify the registration of such trademark. It has the same effect as the traditional Trademark Registration Certificate and can be obtained on-site at China Trademark Office.
So if you have not received your delayed Trademark Registration Certificate and you need it urgently, you can contact your China trademark agent to get the certified trademark filing documents which have the same effect as the Trademark Registration Certificate. China Trademark Office will not charge any fee for this service.
