PPH/PCT-PPH between Denmark and Argentina

PPH program between Denmark and Argentina
The Danish Patent and Trademark Office (DKPTO) and the National Institute of Industrial Property of Argentina (INPI-Argentina) have launched a PPH pilot program commencing on 19 March 2019. The program have a duration of 3 years.


Both Patent Prosecution Highway programs will leverage fast-track patent examination procedures at the DKPTO and INPI to allow applicants in Denmark and Argentina to obtain corresponding patents faster and more efficiently.


The PPH Program
Under the Patent Prosecution Highway, an applicant receiving an Office Action from the DKPTO or INPI stating that the claim(s) in a patent application has novelty, inventive step, and industrial applicability may request that the other patent office fast track the examination of corresponding claims in the corresponding applications.


The Guidelines including the PPH request form to be used by Argentinian applicants are available on our website here.
