EPO and EAPO have started Patent Prosecution Highway as of 1 October 2017

24.10.2017

The European Patent Office (EPO) and the Eurasian Patent Office (EAPO) agreed in spring 2017 to launch a joint Patent Prosecution Highway (PPH) pilot programme to enable work-sharing and accelerated treatment of patent applications at both offices.

The PPH started 1 October 2017 and the pilot will run for an initial term of three years.

You can read our earlier piece of news about the PPH pilot programme here.

We encourage our customers to utilize the PPH pilot programme if terms are met to benefit from the accelerated Eurasian patent application examination.

For further information please contact Mr Erik Goussev, Patent Attorney.
