Webinar: Supplementary Protection Certificates in Europe (pt.1)

When: Thursday 30 July 2020 | 18:00 – 19:00 (BST)

Speakers: Peter Arch and Alexander Robinson

Similar to the Patent Term Extension system in the US, the Supplementary Protection Certificate (SPC) system in Europe provides extended protection for authorised pharmaceutical products beyond the normal 20 year patent term. The system can be complex to navigate, and a constantly developing body of case law has introduced additional requirements which need to be taken into account in all but the simplest of cases.

The first of a two part series, this webinar, presented by Mathys & Squire attorneys Peter Arch and Alexander Robinson, will provide an introduction to the basic requirements for obtaining SPC protection, the types of products which can be protected, and the scope and duration of protection.
