Macedonia and Romania Establish Cooperation for Prior Art Searches

Aug 19 2009 - 17:45

On July 15, 2009, Macedonian and Romanian PTO officials signed a cooperation plan for prior art searches.

Since the Macedonian PTO does not have the necessary resources to perform prior art searches, the cooperation will allow Macedonia to use the services of the Romanian PTO as a qualified search contractor.

Accordingly, the Romanian PTO will assist its Macedonian counterpart in carrying out prior art searches for applications filed under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT). The Macedonian PTO will automatically recognize the results and expert opinion provided by the Romanian PTO.
