Patent pledge registration will no longer require a patent certificate, and relaxation of the reasons for applying for the reissuance or renewal of a patent certificate
To relax regulations and safeguard the rights of patent holders and pledgees, revisions were made to the Enforcement Rules of the Patent Act and promulgated on October 20, 2022. The application process for patent pledges have been simplified, and reasons for reissuance or renewal of patent certificates have been relaxed. Highlights of the revisions are as follows:
I. Deleted requirement that applicants filing for a patent pledge must include the patent certificate, as well as requirement stipulating that patent pledge information must be included within patent certificate.
II. Added “Change in Requisite Information to be Included on Patent Certificate” as a reason for applying for the re-issuance or renewal of a patent certificate. Added the requirement for the Specific Patent Agency to void the original patent certificate upon the re-issuance or renewal of a new patent certificate.
