Cambodia has entered the European Union !

Cambodia has signed with European Patent Office for validiting European Patent in their country. This means that Cambodia is set to become the first Asian country to recognise European patents on its territory. The deal commenced on March 1, 2018.

It is possible for the Turkish industry to benefit from this agreement, especially textile patrons with European patents, to protect their patents more effectively in Cambodia.

The European Patent System is a system of obtaining and protecting the valid patent in the Contracting Parties with a single application and sequence of operations.

Turkey has joined on November 1, 2000, the European patent system and Turkey is among the member countries. This includes Moldova, Morocco, Tunisia and finally Cambodia validation (national acceptance of European patent).
