The US Chamber convened a day long conference on the subject of China and its protectionist intellectual property policies early in July. The report appears to be a follow-up the the conference.

China has long tried to boost its domestic technology market by mandating its own technology standards. But last November, the Chinese government published rules that created a list that could have its them relying only on local products. US companies are worried that they will be shut out of the Chinese market.

The US Chamber’s report is another of a long list of reports and letters issued by business and technology associations around the world that have voiced deep concerns about China’s move last November.

“We are deeply troubled by the actions of the Chinese government in November that would implement an Indigenous Innovation Product Accreditation system,” Software & Information Industry Association President Ken Wasch said in a statement in December. “Implementation of this system will restrict China’s capacity for innovation, impose onerous and discriminatory requirements on companies seeking to sell into the Chinese government procurement market, and contravene multiple commitments of China’s leadership to resist trade and investment protectionism and promote open government procurement policies.”
