1.5 Can I apply a PCT international application in the ROC?

No. The ROC (Taiwan) is not a member of the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) and therefore is unable to accept the PCT application. However, any applicant from a WTO member that files a patent application in Taiwan based on a PCT application and such PCT application designates any WTO members as the designated countries, may claim a right of priority if the PCT application is a legal application.
