Intellectual Property Management Plan

ANPEC plans an intellectual property strategy that combines our operating goals and R&D resources and establishes a set of operating models that create company value through intellectual property rights, which not only protects the freedom of operation, but strengthens competitive advantages and profitability.

  • Patent Protection

ANPEC conducts technological development by the R&D unit and commission an external patent firm to conduct patent applications. Through the implementation of the evaluation mechanism, reward system, promotion and education, and HR training, ANPEC R&D results are protected. We promote the innovation mechanism to motivate employees to submit invention applications and include them in the annual performance indicators. At the same time, ANPEC has established a patent management system.

  • Trade Secret Protection

Trade secrets are related to the ANPEC’s leading technology in the industry and customer trust. To effectively and comprehensively manage and protect trade secrets, the company plans to establish a trade secret management system to record and integrate the use of business secrets with competitive advantages.
