European Patents Protection Extended to Tunisia

As of December 1, 2017 and according to the validation agreement between EPO and Tunisia, European patents will be validated in Tunisia.

It is to be noted that since 2010, the EPO has signed validation agreements with four non-member states. Tunisia will be the third non-member state, following Morocco and Moldova, to enforce the agreement, effective starting 1 December, 2017.

Companies and inventors from all around the world will be able to easily extend the scope of their patent protection to Tunisia.
