Cambodia joins the European … Patent Organisation
The European Patent Organisation (EPO) confirms its expansion. The EPO now rallies 44 states far beyond the European borders. The EPO has indeed signed agreements with Morocoo and Tunisia and from now on with Cambodia; that one might regard as an old reminiscence of the former French protectorates from the beginning of the 20th century. The agreement on the validation of European patents signed between the Government of the Kingdom of Cambodia and the EPO entered into force on 1 March 2018. Validation in Cambodia is deemed requested for any European or international application filed on or after 1 March 2018.
