Jordan became the 152nd member of the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) on March 9, 2017, and the most recent Arab state to accede to the PCT. The Treaty is expected to enter into force on June 9, 2017. During the transitional period, the Ministry concerned will raise awareness to familiarize all stakeholders with the PCT.

We expect further developments and news in this area that should clarify the direct benefits of Jordan’s accession to the PCT.
