Uruguay seeks to enter the Patent Cooperation Treaty

Uruguay seeks to enter the Patent Cooperation Treaty

Uruguay’s executive sent to Parliament a formal paper to participate in the PCT.

The President of Uruguay, Luis Lacalle Pou, in his vision to expand the range of markets that Uruguay currently has outside the region and beyond Mercosur, has issued a request for international insertion, in this case in the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP).

Last December, Uruguay’s letter of accession to the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (Cptpp), a relatively recent economic alliance, representing approximately 13.4% of the world economy, was presented.

To do so, the government is aware that it must comply with the ratification of the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT), signed in Washington (USA) in 1970 and in force since 1978, as one of the many requirements imposed by the 11 countries that are part of the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Currently, 157 countries from the five continents have ratified the PCT.

For this purpose, the Uruguayan national Government sent to Parliament for its approval the formal paper approving the accession to the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT), signed in Washington on June 19, 1970, amended on September 28, 1979, modified on February 3, 1984 and October 3, 2001. Read more
