EFIS 1, January 2008 : Intellectual Property

You must login to download the contents of this EFIS.

The new Patents Rules 2007 came into force on 17th December 2007.

The UK Intellectual Property Office (UKIPO) has amended the forms listed to take account of these new Rules.

We have added SP1, SP2, SP3 and SP4 to your range. SP4 is a new form for a paediatric extension in accordance with a European Commission Regulation (EU No. 1901/2006) which was originally published on 27th December 2006.

This EC Regulation will allow a supplementary protection certificate (SPC) holder or applicant to extend the SPC team by 6 months if the applicant can show that he or she has complied with a “paediatric investigation plan” concerning use of the medicinal product.

Because the fee of Ł40 is no longer payable, form PF11_77 has been abolished. Also form PF53_77 has become obsolete.

Finally, we advise practitioners to remove forms PF1_77, PF7_77, PF9_77, PF9A_77, PF10_77, PF12_77, PF23_77, PF52_77 and PF54_77 and use the new versions listed instead.

All forms can be used immediately.
