We have associates who offer manufacturing support for products which will be made in China / Taiwan. They will sign your NDA's, and get the manufacturers to also sign NDA's prior to supply of any commercially sensitive information / technical drawings. However, we recommend applying for a Registered Design and a China's Design Patent
. The NDA will be testament that the a manufacturer agrees that any IPR arising out of the manufacturing will be yours, while the Registered Design and Design Patent will give you exclusive rights to the particular design. If your product has a sizeable market across the world, you may find it useful to apply for an International Design
. We have expertise in Design registration and can help you with these steps. Contact us here
