International Patent Application (PCT)

What is it?

  • A PCT application or Paris Convention Treaty application can:
    - get you a patent filing date in 146 countries, including the U.S., U.K., China, Canada, Japan, Australia, Germany, etc. (see here)
    - guarantee you the patent filing date for up to 30 months from the date of filing with a single application.
  • A PCT application can avoid duplicating efforts and the extra costs of filing a provisional patent in each single country in which you seek protection.
  • Like a Provisional Application for Patent in the United States, it is a placeholder, that gives you an official filing date, and allows you to file a full application later. Many inventors file a PCT application to protect their official filing date, while testing the market for their invention.
