IPONZ joins Global Patent Prosecution Highway

IPONZ has today joined the Global Patent Prosecution Highway (GPPH) pilot programme.

The GPPH is an arrangement between intellectual property (IP) offices that allows patent applicants to request accelerated examination, where one or more claims of a corresponding application have been found to be allowable by another GPPH IP office.

More information on the GPPH is available on our Global Patent Prosecution Highway page.
