Patent Cooperation Treaties (PCT)

The PCT is administrated by WIPO, World Intellectual Property Organization. It is an international treaty with more than 145 Contracting States.1 The PCT makes it possible to seek patent protection for an invention simultaneously in a large number of countries by filing a single “international” patent application instead of filing several separate national or regional patent applications. PCT FAQs.
