Global Patent Prosecution Highway

The launch of the Global Patent Prosecution Highway (GPPH) was announced at the end of 2013 and commenced on 6 January 2014. Under the GPPH, an applicant who has had a set of claims found allowable by a participating office can request accelerated processing of a co-pending application at any of the other offices. The acceleration requests will conform to a uniform set of criteria for all participating offices. A full list of offices can be found at www.jpo.go.jp/ppph-portal/globalpph.htm.
