Successful seminar at the Hungarian Intellectual Property Office
On 5 September 2017 the Hungarian Intellectual Property Office (HIPO) held a successful seminar, in cooperation with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), on filing of international patent application electronically via the improved ePCT system.
Since 1 June 2015 HIPO can receive PCT applications electronically also as a Receiving Office through the ePCT application of WIPO. In the past two years the surface of the ePCT was renewed, meanwhile more and more applicants use this system. The purpose of this event was to introduce the new surface and to learn the experiences. In addition to the HIPO staff dealing with PCT, 30 representatives of patent attorney offices and individual patent attorneys participated at the seminar.
