Moldova has left the Eurasian Patent Convention

27.4.2012
Any Eurasian patent application filed on 26 April 2012 and later will not cover Moldova anymore. The earlier filed Eurasian patent applications and the already issued Eurasian patents will remain in force in Moldova.

PCT applications having an international filing date before 26 April 2012 and duly filed with the Eurasian Patent Office within 31 months from the earliest priority date will be in force in Moldova if the corresponding annuity is paid after the patent grant. The Eurasian Patent Office will also continue to handle appeals, annuity payments, registrations of assignments and other legal matters in relation to Eurasian patents in force in Moldova or applications having an international filing date before 26 April 2012.

If you want to file a PCT regional phase application at the Eurasian patent office or a national patent application in Moldova, feel free to contact us for further information.
