+ Green Technology Can be Patented in One Month Through SuperHigh Speed Examination

Patents related to green technology can be obtained in a month through superhigh speed examination.


 


The KIPO said on September 30, 2009 that superhigh speed examination would be applied on patent applications in the field of green technologies that are related to environment or that are financially supported or authenticated for green growth policy.


 


Therefore, those who apply for green technology patent can receive their examination results in a month by entrusting prior art search with a registered search institution and submitting the documents including the information on searched prior arts to the KIPO.


 


The examination through superhigh speed examination is completed within a month, which is much shorter compared to a normal examination of average 18 months and a priority examination of about 3 months.


 


When the application is rejected under the superhigh speed examination, the applicant can file an appeal through a fast appeal system and receive the result of his appeal within 4 months from the filing.


 


By applying a superhigh speed examination on green technology, the applicant can facilitate obtaining patent and industrializing related technologies and also acquire patent rights in foreign countries through a patent examination highway after the superhigh speed examination in a short period, building a basis of preoccupying green markets which are becoming more competitive, a KIPO official said.
