EAPO Launches Instant Publication of Granted Eurasian Patents

Starting from November 2019, the Eurasian Patent Office launched the technology of ‘instant’ publication of Eurasian patents. The information on the grant of the Eurasian patent and full description of the Eurasian patent will be loaded on the Eurasian Publication Server directly after the completion of their technical preparation for publication.

The official monthly Gazette of the Eurasian Patent Office "Inventions (Eurasian Applications and Patents)" will be formed online on the Eurasian Publishing Server as the Eurasian patents are published starting from the first calendar day of each month and will be closed on the last calendar day of the respective month.

In accordance with this approach, the date of grant of the Eurasian patent for the purpose of Rule 51(1) of the Patent Regulations under the Eurasian Patent Convention will be the date of publication of information on the grant of the Eurasian patent on the Eurasian Publication Server. The date of publication of Eurasian applications will be the date of finalization of the current issue of the Gazette, i.e. the last calendar day of the current month. Information of the "Notifications" section of the Gazette will also be published according to the instant publication technology, i.e. monthly issue will include notifications published from the first day of the month until the date of finalization of the current issue of the Gazette.
