As announced in a previous update, the Intellectual Property Office (TIPO) is currently participating in "Patent Prosecution Highway "(PPH) pilot programmes with the Japan Patent Office (JPO) and the USPTO. In order to promote work sharing and facilitate the use of the PPH, TIPO started a special support programme ("TW-SUPA") on 1 March 2012. This support programme has now been revised and will run for another trial period of one year, starting on 1 September 2012.
Information on the revised "TW-SUPA" can be found in an English version of the programme. See also this press release on TIPO's Chinese website and the dedicated PPH section on the JPO's English website.
