Project Duration

The official process duration given by the Chinese authorities is a total of eight months. Additional times for type tests and document appraisals also need to be considered.

Our engineers can reduce the project duration wherever possible and whenever it makes sense.

Our experience has shown that in reality, project durations can waver immensely from the official project timeframe and that in some cases preliminary preparation times (the time spent leading to the successful application) were threefold the officially stated timeframe (see preliminary work).

Additional times for type tests and document appraisals need to be considered and will also influence the project timeframe (Even if your products don’t directly fall under the mandatory licensing process (see license mandatory yes or no)).

Use our experience and plan your SELO license project with realistic time frames. Your customers will be grateful and contractual penalties can be avoided. You will be a trusted partner because you have proven competent.
