Tunisia: Recently Approved the Law Related to European Patent Validation Agreement

Tunisia has recently approved the law related to the European Patent Validation Agreement, which will enter into force following issuance of the related implementing regulations.  The Agreement is designed to simplify patent protection in Tunisia for European Patent applicants and owners by validating the legal effects of their European patents and applications (even though Tunisia is not an EPO member state). The new law is expected to encourage more filings and more foreign investment.
