Discounts on PCT fees for Latin America at the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office

Latin American applicants wishing to protect their inventions internationally can obtain a substantial fee reduction via the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT).

Thus, if they choose the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office (SPTO) to carry out the International Search and the International Preliminary Examination in the PCT process, they may see the amount of the fees associated with these procedures reduced by up to 75 %.

In addition, and provided that the SPTO had carried out the International Search, Latin American applicants will be eligible for a EUR 1,110 discount on the European search fee during the Euro-PCT regional phase.

For more information on these advantages, please contact us at ponti@ponti.pro or by telephone at +34 934 874 936.
