PPH programs between the Danish Patent and Trademark Office and the State Intellectual Property Office of the P.R.C. (SIPO)
The Danish Patent and Trademark Office (DKPTO) and the State Intellectual Property Office of the P.R.C. (SIPO) are launching a PPH pilot and a PCT-PPH program commencing 1 January 2013.
Under the Patent Prosecution Highway, an applicant receiving an Office Action from the DKPTO or SIPO 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 Chinese applicants are available on our website here.
Under the PCT-Patent Prosecution Highway, an applicant receiving a written opinion or an international preliminary examination report from SIPO that at least one claim in a PCT application has novelty, inventive step, and industrial applicability may request that the DKPTO fast track the examination of corresponding claims in corresponding applications.
The Guidelines including the PCT-PPH form to be used is available on our website here.
Both Patent Prosecution Highway programs will leverage fast-track patent examination procedures at the DKPTO and SIPO to allow applicants in Denmark and the China to obtain corresponding patents faster and more efficiently.
