PPH-KIPO is Now Available in Indonesia

JAKARTA: The Directorate General of Intellectual Property of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights (DGIP) has officially in cooperation with the Korean Intellectual Property Organization (KIPO) for establishing the Patent Prosecution Highway (PPH) program. The pilot program was launched on December 8, 2023. This program facilitates an accelerated patent registration process for applications corresponding with a South Korean application of the same invention, which is done by way of conforming examination results from KIPO into DGIP’s examination process.

Applicants can file a request to participate in the PPH program. For this purpose, the first thing the applicants have to do is ensuring that the application intended for the accelerated examination satisfies the requirements to join the program. This includes making sure that the relevant patent application has passed the publication period and it corresponds with application(s) that has been deemed patentable or allowable by the KIPO.

Vice versa, the program also facilitates an accelerated examination process for patent applications filed in South Korea and have corresponding application(s) which have been deemed patentable or allowable by DGIP. Read more
