Latest News: Jordan
Jordan has officially become the 152nd Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) Contracting State and all PCT applications filed on or after 9 June 2017 will automatically designate this state.
As a result, from 9 June 2017 it will no longer be necessary to file a Jordan application at 12 months from the earliest priority date if a PCT application is filed. A national phase application will still have to be filed in Jordan to obtain patent protection in this territory, but only at the end of the international phase of PCT.
