New FAQ section on Iran

Post by EPO / Asia Info » Wed Jul 17, 2019 11:16 am

Dear patent information users,

This is to inform you that we have extended the EPO’s Virtual Helpdesk on the patent systems to include a new FAQ section on Iran ... iran.html .

The new section covers basics of the local procedures and other useful information on the Iranian patent system. The FAQs are available in English, German and French languages.

Iran is a member of the most important international patent treaties, including the Paris Convention and the PCT system. According to WIPO’s statistics, the Iranian patent office received 16,259 patent applications in 2017 (source: WIPO’s IP Statistics Data Center ) which is the sixth highest number among all Asian IP offices.

If the answer to your question is not provided by the FAQs or if you need more detailed information on Iranian patent information, please contact us via the webform ( ... form.html ) and by sending an email to and our expert will provide you with further information.

We hope you enjoy this new addition to our webpages and will continue to extend this and other content in the future!

With kind regards,

EPO’s Asian Patent Information Services team
