13.09.2018  14:55

The Danish Patent and Trademark Office, DKPTO and the Brazilian National Institute of Industrial Property, INPI have signed a PPH agreement (Patent Prosecution Highway) commencing on 1 September 2018. The agreement, which is the result of good collaboration between the Danish and the Brazilian authorities, will facilitate Danish export to Brazil even further. The Patent Prosecution Highway programs will leverage fast-track patent examination procedures at the DKPTO and INPI to allow applicants in Denmark and Brazil to obtain corresponding patents faster and more efficiently.

 

The agreement will initially include areas within machinery, environment and energy but the coming years the collaboration between the DKPTO, the Foreign Ministry and the Brazilian authorities will continue, hopefully including even more areas eventually.
