The Peruvian National Institute for the Defense of Free Competition and the Protection of Intellectual Property (INDECOPI) joined the Global Patent Prosecution Highway (GPPH) pilot project on 6 January 2019. Thanks to this project, applicants can benefit from an accelerated patent examination, by request, among the 26 participating offices.
Peru and Colombia (2017) are the first countries from the Latin American region to have joined this global pilot project.
