San Marino joins European Patent System

San Marino became the 36th contracting state of the European Patent Convention on 1 June 2009. San Marino can therefore be designated in European patent applications (and PCT applications designating the EPO) filed from that date onwards.

We doubt that the accession of San Marino to the European patent system will have an impact on our clients’ filing strategies, but we welcome the continued expansion of the regional patent system in Europe.
