Is a pre-filing trademark search necessary?

In order to decrease the possibility of rejection based on identical or similar marks, a pre-filing trademark search is recommended.

At present, the search is now limited only to marks composed of Chinese words, foreign words and their combinations; marks with only designs or on the design portions of composite marks cannot be searched.

Either regular searches or urgent searches can be requested; the former takes 7 workdays to complete the search report, while the latter takes 5 workdays.
