Overview

China Pharma IP Summit is a serial event dedicated to pharmaceutical IP protection, and so far we have hold 2 sessions in the year of 2016 and 2017. Government agencies, pharmaceutical/biotech companies, law firms/ IP agencies and other IP solution providers have been invited to attend and we discussed lots of hot issues. Meanwhile, the event has been a good networking platform for industry experts both from local China and abroad.

2017 is a year of great significance in China pharmaceutical industry. On May 2017, China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) issued Policy Notice No. 55, entitled “Policies Relevant to the Protection of the Rights and Interests of Innovators for the Encouragement of Innovation in Drugs and Medical Devices”. On October 2017, the Opinions on Deepening the Review and Approval System Reform and Encouraging the Drug and Medical Device Innovation was officially issued, clearly putting forward the establishing patent linkage system, launching pilot program on drug patent extension, completing data protection and implementing list of marketed drugs. At the moment, China is conducting legislation for patent linkage and patent extension, which draws lots of attention.

In terms of intellectual property judicial, on Feb 2018, General Office of the CPC and General Office of the State Council issued Strengthening the Intellectual Property Judicial Reform and Innovation, which is the first guiding document regarding to intellectual property judicial. Pharmaceutical is heavily relied on IP protection, and we predict the guiding document will have influence on pharmaceutical IP litigation in China.

Based on the background, we are glad to inform that 3rd China Pharma IP Summit 2018 will be hold on 24th -26th October in Beijing, providing a platform to discuss updated policies and hot issues.

Through the event, you will have chance to:

1. Follow the latest development of patent linkage and patent term extension reform in China

2. Understand the differences and updated requirements of examination standards, patent invalidation, patent litigation in China, US, EU, Japan and other region.
