USPTO extends Patent Prosecution Highway pilot program with Mexico

Please share:

To reduce pendencies and lower barriers to international patent protection, the USPTO extended its Patent Prosecution Highway (PPH) pilot program with the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property until June 30, 2027.

The PPH program enables an applicant who receives a positive ruling on patent claims from one participating office to request accelerated prosecution of corresponding claims in another participating office, allowing the applicant to obtain a patentability decision in the second office more quickly. More information on the PPH program is available on the USPTO’s PPH webpage.

The full text of the notice is available on the USPTO’s Patent Related Notices webpage.
