The protection center will conduct pre-examination on patent applications which meet the prioritized standards in areas of automobile and its parts, and handle them to the patent examination department of SIPO for expedited examination. Therefore, the average period for invention patent to be granted will be reduced from 22 months to a period between 3 to 6 months, the grant period for design patents will be reduced to less than 1 month from the current 3 months to 6 months, and the time for re-examination and invalidation will also be greatly reduced.
