Where can I find official information about patent fees in China?

You can find official information about patent fees in Chinese on the website of the State Intellectual Property Office of China (SIPO).

Fee payments for specific applications can be checked in SIPO’s online sources. Its Chinese-language website allows users to check fee payments for patents and utility models from 2005 onwards. Those who want to check fee payments in English can now also use the “China and Global Patent Examination Inquiry” database.

Step-by-step guides on how to search this information are available on the “Searching in databases” page of our website.
