Europe: EPO and EAPO Start Fast-Track Patent Examination

Inventors and businesses applying for patent protection at the EPO and the Eurasian Patent Office (EAPO) will now be able to benefit from fast-track patent examination at both offices, following the entry into force of the joint Patent Prosecution Highway (PPH) pilot program. The PPH also permits each participating patent office to share and re-use existing work results.
