The Accession Procedures of Jordan to the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) with the Secretary General of WIPO have been completed.

Accordingly, the Accession into the said Treaty will enter into force, as of June 9, 2017.

Thus, any PCT application filed on or after June 9, 2017 will automatically include the designation of Jordan; and the Jordanian nationals and residents will be able to submit international patent applications through the Jordanian Patent Office.

Accession of Jordan to the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) would benefit both the foreign and local applicants and would contribute to increasing in the number of patent applications filed with the Directorate of Industrial Property Protection at the Ministry of Industry and Commerce
