On March 29, 2018, the Chinese State Council released Measures for the Overseas Transfers of Intellectual Property Rights (Measures) for trial implementation. The Measures regulate overseas intellectual property (IP) transfers from the People’s Republic of China by imposing heightened scrutiny over the potential impact to national security and China’s technology innovation capabilities. Under the Measures, the Ministry of Commerce and various state departments are empowered to conduct a security assessment of certain overseas IP transfers. Although there is no indication as to how long the “trial implementation” period will last, the release of the Measures clearly represents a stepping up in China’s technology export regulations. This gear upshift may have a ripple effect on multinational businesses that are parties to IP licensing transactions or those that have research and development (R&D) activities in China.
