To successfully halt counterfeiting in China, it is essential for one to prove that his or her IPR have been infringed, backing by a significant volume of evidence. In Chinese Court the burden of proof lies with the plaintiff. As one proves his ownership via IPR certificates he must also prove the infringement via physical evidence including contracts, photographs of infringing products and proof of sale which have been validated by a notary public.

As a follow-up event of the meeting on the Trademark Law, this meeting aims to explain why the evidence of IPR infringement is important, what can be used and how to effectively secure the evidence needed. The European Chamber is pleased to invite Mr. Lionel Yan and Mr. Benjamin Miles from Blackpeak to share their best practice on evidence notarisation.

Joint Working Group Meeting: China’s Social Credit System – What to expect?
Fully booked

Chinese government authorities have recently issued a series of policies and draft amendments to push forward the establishment of the Social Credit System (SCS). Foreign enterprises are particularly concerned at how the SCS could affect the business operation of their Chinese subsidiaries.

As the Social Credit System will be largely in place by the end of 2020, SCS is no longer just a vision. With the window of opportunity rapidly closing for companies to prepare for these regulatory ratings, companies need to stay alert for the upcoming the SCS and expect that heavy non-compliance will immediately lead to a listing as a distrusted entity, followed by costly sanctions.
