Moldova and Eurasian Patent Organization Sign Cooperation Agreement

Apr 26 2012 - 12:33

On April 12, the Moldovan PTO and the Eurasian Patent Office (EAPO) signed a Cooperation Agreement on Legal Protection of Inventions in the Republic of Moldova.

It was necessary to have the agreement signed because Moldova denounced the Eurasian Patent Convention. The denunciation takes effect on April 26.

Under the agreement, Moldova will recognize the Eurasian patents granted before the denunciation took effect, as well as the Eurasian patents granted after the denunciation took effect, if the applications were filed before April 26.
