8. Q: Kann die Patentverwaltungsbehörde Tatsachen einer Rechtsverletzung ermitteln und feststellen?

Yes, it can. The administrative authority for patent affair can look into the related files, materials and original receipts, invoices or vouchers from the involved entity or individual to collect evidence to further determine and establish the infringing facts, to find out the scale and seriousness of the infringement and to decide on the amount of compensation for the infringement. According to some local regulations, e.g. the Regulations of Guangdong Province on Patent Protection, if a complainant provides guaranty, the administrative authority for patent affairs may also apply for safekeeping or detention to seal up or detain files, drawings, data, accountbooks relating to the infringing act to prevent the infringer from removing infringing products or evidence.
