Essential Patent Policy: China's New Regulation

According to the TalkStandard (, China recently announced a new regulation policy for IPRs in China's nation standards.

Draft for the regulation, whose deadline for the submitting comments was November 30, includes several interesting proposals:

1. Relevant IPRs involved in the China's national standardization process should be disclosed by IPR holders.

2. IPRs that are disclosed should available at royalty fees that are considerably lower than FRAND.

3. IPRs that are not disclosed are considered to be royalty free.

4. IPR holders who concealing IPR information shall bear legal liabilities.
