On July 6, 2015, the Estonian Patent Office joined the Global Patent Prosecution Highway (GPPH) pilot, launched on January 6, 2014.

There are now 21 countries participating in the GPPH, including Hungary and Russia.

The GPPH aims to simplify and improve the existing bilateral PPH system by allowing patent applicants to request accelerated examination at any of the participating offices if their claims have been found acceptable by one of the offices participating in the GPPH.
