The General Administration of Customs (GAC) patrols imports and exports through Chinese borders to prevent counterfeiting. Register your trademark with the GAC and provide details about your goods and any previous or suspected infringers to protect your brand from counterfeits.
The State Administration of Industry and Commerce (SAIC) conducts raids, seizes infringing goods and imposes fines on infringers. The process is swift and doesn’t require proof of damages, but the SAIC can’t issue injunctions or order infringers to compensate for damages.
The People’s Court of China
The People’s Court of China handles civil and criminal trademark infringement cases. Due to severity, the process takes 3-6 months for criminal and 6-12 months for civil cases. The court can demand damage compensation and issue injunctions, fines, and prison sentences.
