On 27 March 2019 at 10.30 hrs CET, the EPO will host another free webinar. This time, we will provide an overview on patent term extensions for medicinal products in Europe and Asia.
In the first part, participants will get an overview of patent term extensions in Europe ("SPCs"). We will present the legal framework and combine it with the information in our databases like INPADOC or Espacenet. We will also have a look at future plans for SPC information in INPADOC.
In the second part, we will focus on patent term extension information from Asia. We will give an overview of related provisions in the local patent laws and regulations of Japan, Korea and Chinese Taipei and look at some upcoming changes in the legislation in China.
In addition, we will show you how to retrieve the related information from official sources and give tips on how the EPO can help you go further with this topic.
