In light of the success of the Patent Prosecution Highway (PPH) Program, the BRPTO informed last June 30, 2022, that such Program reached the limit of 150 requests during 2022 for applications covering inventions within the section H of the IPC which relates to electricity.
Therefore, according to the current PPH normative, any new PPH request submitted during this year for inventions included in section H of the IPC will be considered rejected. New PPH requests on such classification will only be allowed if submitted from January 2023.
It is essential to highlight that the PPH requests for inventions included in the remaining IPC sections are still being admitted.
