Is a tool designed to avoid duplicating examinations and reduce patent prosecution workload. PPG is available between:
- USPTO and MXPTO.
- EPO and MXPTO
Contrary to PPH which can be requested only before the substantive examination has initiated, PPG can be requested at any time during te prosecution of the Mexican application, by amending the pending claims in Mexico to match those allowed/granted by the USPTO or EPO. Non-patentable matter such as therapeutic/diagnose/surgical methods applicable to the human being or animals, computer programs or business methods, among others, will still not be allowed despite PPG - however, please contact us for appropriate rewording or revamping of the claims if needed.
We are at your service should you have any questions.
