This offers a clear advantage over national patents. One saves representation and translation costs. From a timeframe perspective protection may be obtained in approx. 3 years if the registration process devolves smothly.
PCT – the easiest way to coordinate patent protection in a large number of territories
The centralised patent protection system offered by PCT – The International Patent System is the most approriate tool to obtain protection in several territories. The advantages offered by the international phase adds time and streamlines the overall costs.

Supplementary protection certificates (SPCs) are intellectual property rights that serve as an extension to a patent right. They apply to specific pharmaceutical and plant protection products that have been authorised by regulatory authorities. SPCs extend the term by a maximum of 5 years in addition to the patent’s term of 20 years. Protection can be obtained in all EU member states and in Norway and Iceland which are members of the European Economic Area (EEA).
