New members join the GPPH cooperation

On the 6th of July 2017 New Zealand and Columbia joined the Global Patent Prosecution Highway (GPPH) cooperation, which now has 24 members. The goal of the cooperation is that the applicants, who have applications in multiple participating countries with similar claims, may receive granting letters more easily. Hungary joined the GPPH in 2014. The cooperation allows applicants to speed up their applications in countries like Japan, Korea, UK, Germany, Russia or the USA. More information is available on the HIPO website:
