Formal requirements:

It usually takes 6-8 month from the filing date to be recorded in China.


1. Only the same entity with only change of its name/address adopts this procedure. If the essential of the entity has already changed, assignment application should be considered accordingly.
2. All the trademark registrations in the same registrant should be recorded for change of name/address in a lump. Otherwise the examiner will issue an Office Action requiring so.
