The Brazilian Patent and Trademark Office (BPTO) launches a PPH Pilot Program with the European Patent Office (EPO)

This time, the measure consists of a cooperation agreement signed between the BPTO and the EPO by means of a PPH (Patent Prosecution Highway) Pilot Program exclusively directed to inventions in the Medical Technology and the Chemistry areas (excluding pharmaceutical products).
 
The new program will accept a maximum of 300 applications per year, whose examinations will be accelerated after the grant of the corresponding patents by the EPO.
 
Nowadays, Brazil already maintains PPH agreements with USA (Oil & Gas), Japan (information technology and mechanical engineering) and Latin-America countries that are members of Prosur.
