Wednesday, May 16, 2018 - 15:45

The BPTO and the DKPTO signed, on April 12, 2018, a memorandum in order to implement a PPH Pilot program between both Offices. The agreement will be in force for two years and up to 100 applications could be accepted into the program per year. Brazil is the first South American country with which the DKPTO signs this kind of cooperation agreement. The BPTO has been making efforts to reduce the patent backlog. This will be the seventh PPH program to be implemented by the BRPTO and the second signed in less than a month since the BRPTO signed a PPH program with the UKIPO last March.
