Multiple priorities 

The applicant may claim more than one priority based on previous applications in the same or different states and/or WTO members. Where multiple priorities are claimed, time limits which are calculated from the priority date run from the earliest date of priority and, as a result, the European application must be made within twelve months from the earliest priority date (see, however, A‑III, 6.6); this applies if earlier applications have been filed in any of the industrial property offices mentioned in A‑III, 6.2.
