Egypt revises its PCT annuity payment instructions

Afro Leo has learned that the Egyption Patent Office issued new regulations on 2 December 2009 by which that Office requests the payment of due annuities at the time of filing of the national phase of an international application, this being calculated as of its international application date, and not after grant. The Office also confirms that all annuities which are due of previous applications must be settled before 31 December 2009 if the applicant is to avoid the lapse of its application.
