On 2 July, OHIM received a visit from Deputy Commissioner He of the Chinese State Intellectual Property Office (SIPO).

SIPO is the Chinese office in charge of, among other responsibilities, registering designs in China.

Vice President Archambeau briefed Deputy Commissioner He on a number of issues of mutual interest, including the possibility of performing a Chinese IP Study on the economic contribution of designs and the new ID5 forum, a forum exclusively dedicated to designs with China (SIPO), Japan, South Korea, USA and OHIM.

The revised status of the Chinese Patent Law was discussed and OHIM gave a presentation on design trends in RCD applications.

Also discussed were the current bilateral activities, such as training on RCD offered to SIPO staff; and new cooperation areas for the future, including new roving seminars, sharing knowledge on quality management and project management.

Another topic was the IP Key project status and the progress of Chinese design data integration into Designview.

Complete integration and go-live of the tool is expected in mid-September 2015.
