With effect from 1 November 2015, China Government will freeze the official fee (previously levied at RMB800) for intellectual property right recordal with the General Administration of Customs of PRC (“GACC”).

Intellectual property right (“IPR”) owners may protect their rights in China by recording their intellectual property right with the GACC. GACC will detain the infringing goods entering and leaving China if they found suspected infringing goods based on the recorded intellectual property right and will inform the owners or owner’s agent. IPR owners may then take appropriate action against the infringer.
