Brazil: a priority task

    No comments:

Seeking to help ‘startups’ to consolidate themselves in the market, INPI is examining their patent applications with priority. The initiative, which started on 30th July, aims to support technology-based companies.

INPI reports that at the end of the first half of 2020, the average time frame for technical examination of priority patent applications was around 13 months.

A ‘startup’ is defined in the national Complementary Law No. 167, of April 24, 2019 (here in Portuguese). Startups must present a copy of the certificate issued by the Redesim portal, indicating the company as ‘Inova Simples’.
