New PPH-agreement between Denmark and Israel

In Insights, Uncategorized

23 January, 2012

The year of 2012 has arrived with new possibilities for Danish patent applicants who wish to obtain a patent abroad in a faster and more cost efficient way:

A PPH-agreement, on a pilot project basis, between The Danish Patent and Trademark Office (DKPTO) and the Israeli Patent Office has taken effect from 5 January 2012, thus enabling patent applicants to request accelerated proceedings at the ILPO once they have obtained a decision to grant from the DKPTO.

Also, the DKPTO has announced that due to user demand efforts to establish a PPH-agreement with the Russian Patent Office have been initiated. It is expected that a PPH-agreement between DKPTO and ROSPATENT will enter into force on 1 February 2012.
