Overseas Patents

By filing an application in Australia and establishing a “priority date” it is then possible to file in overseas countries within twelve months of that priority date and still claim the application in the overseas country as the date of the Patent filed in that country as the priority date established in Australia.

It is also possible to file an application under the Patent Co-operation Treaty within the so-called twelve month priority period and this can extend the right to file in independent countries subsequently by a period up to eighteen to nineteen months.
