How is the patent application filed via PCT Route in EPO?

Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) is an international filing system in which the applicant gets an international filing date in all the designated countries, conferring the late entry (up to 31 months) to the national offices without affecting the priority date. The PCT does not provide for grant of Patent, the responsibility of granting or rejecting the patents lies exclusively with the regional patent offices on the basis of their local Patent law and rules.

The time limit applicable for entry into the National Phase in EPO is 31 months from the date of earliest priority.
