PCT Procedure facilitates the attainment to protect your intellectual property in the WIPO State members : the registration has the legal effects towards all the WIPO countries as if it was a national registration in that specific country.
Once you obtain the national registration for every state you have chosen in your application, PCT gives you facilitation to obtain the worldwide protection. Patent is exclusively released by the assigned authority ; the Phase 1 is differed to the 30th month of the date of registration/ priority request.
For the application it is mandatory to be an inhabitant or the have the nationality of a PCT State. PCT applications must be in one of the WIPO official languages (English, French or German). PCT application can be registered at the Italian Ministry of economic development (Italian Ufficio Italiano Brevetti e Marchi), to WIPO in Switzerland or to EPO (European Patent Office) in The Hague or in Munich. In the case of a first national registration or of a priority request, it is mandatory to register the PCT patent in your own country (for Italy : Ufficio Italiano Brevetti e Marchi).
