PCT INTERNATIONAL FILING - NATIONAL PHASE ENTRY

The time limit provided by PCT for entering the national phase in various countries is 30/31 months from the priority date. If the PCT route is not followed by the applicant the time limit for entering/filing application in other countries remains 12 months. Therefore by using the PCT system the entry in National Phase can be deferred upto 30/31 months (and the resulting expenditure).

ADVANTAGE OF FILING PCT INTERNATIONAL APPLICATIONS

Advantages of filing PCT International Application:

  1. The PCT facilitates the obtaining of protection for inventions where such protection is sought in any or all of the PCT Contracting States. It provides for the filing of one patent application (“the international application”), with effect in several States though the grant as per local/regional laws.

  2. Use of the PCT saves effort, time, and work of the applicant seeking protection for an invention in a number of countries.

  3. Use of the PCT also helps the applicant to make decisions about the prosecution of the application before the various national Patent Offices in the national phase of processing.
