Amended Accelerated Examination Program (AEP) Effective Jan 1, 2022


In order to promote the research  and  development  of green patents and accelerate commercialization of related products, the scope of applicability of AEP will be expanded to include green technologies such as energy-saving, carbon emission reduction, and resource-saving technologies.

In addition, applications on the grounds of "essential  to commercial exploitation" and " inventions related to green technologies" will have their accelerated examination results issued within 6 months instead of 9 after filing all necessary documents, expediting the examination process of relevant cases.

The amended Accelerated Examination Program is published on the TIPO website for reference by the public.
