CET-3 has carried out a detailed study of the various national requirements for the effective transfer of priority rights in accordance with Article 4A(1) of the Paris Convention. The study focused on the manner in which various countries and regions have implemented the provisions of Article 4A(1), and where this implementation differs from the specific provisions of the Paris Convention. The information gathered was analysed and a set of guidelines prepared to assist FICPI members and their clients to take the steps necessary to ensure that priority rights are transferred in a manner which will be effective in all or most Paris Convention countries.
The guidelines can be found here.
