Following publication of the Resolution P-187 recently issued by the Argentinean Patent Office (ARPO), patent applicants must inform the Patent Office if the priorities claimed for all those pending patent applications filed in Argentina prior to January 1, 2013, have already been allowed to grant.

If no reply is filed by November 27, 2014, the relevant application in Argentina will be regarded as withdrawn.

We therefore recommend that you check and proceed accordingly with all your patent applications filed in Argentina prior to January 1, 2013 still pending grant. We have already done that for the patents under our control.
