China National Intellectual Property Administration to Close from October 1 – 8, 2020

The China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA) will close from October 1 through October 8, 2020 for a combination of Mid-Autumn Festival and National Day holidays.  All patent and trademark deadlines that fall within this period are postponed to October 9, 2020.

Mid-Autumn Festival (中秋节) is perhaps the second most important traditional Chinese holiday after Chinese New Year.  The holiday is often celebrated by eating moon cake and observing the full moon outdoors.

National Day (国庆节) celebrates the founding of the People’s Republic of China on October 1, 1949 similar to the U.S.’ Independence Day celebrations.
