L'EPO annuncia la possibilità di aderire al progetto pilota denominato "Patent Prosecution Highway" (PPH).

Il progetto pilota ha avuto inizio il 29 Gennaio 2010 e terminerà il 28 Gennaio 2012.

Di seguito alcuni estratti della Notice EPO del 25 Gennaio scorso:

"The PPH was established to enable an applicant whose claims are determined to be patentable/allowable in the office of first filing (OFF) to have the corresponding application filed in the office of second filing (OSF) advanced out of turn for examination while at the same time allowing the OSF to exploit the work results of the OFF."

"Where the EPO is the ISA, or ISA and IPEA, and the PCT application contains claims that are determined to be patentable/allowable by the EPO as ISA or IPEA, the applicant may request accelerated examination at the JPO and the USPTO when the application has entered the national phase before these Offices. "
