New agreement between Chile and Brazil to promote the use of the PCT

Starting on August 1, 2023, National Institute of Industrial Property Ministry of Economy (INAPI) will be one of the International Searching Authority and International Preliminary Examining Authority (ISA/IPEA) offices that Brazilian applicants can choose for the processing of patents via Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT), and likewise, National Institute of Industrial Property of Brazil (INPI) can operate as ISA/IPEA for Chilean applicants or those domiciled in Chile.

During the General Assemblies of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) held in Geneva, Switzerland, in July, the National Director of INAPI, and the Acting President of the INPI, signed a cooperation agreement regarding the services provided by both offices in their roles as International Authorities of the PCT.
