Recognition of European Patents in Morocco

Starting on March 1st, 2015 granted European Patents can achieve legal force in Morocco. For any European Patent Application and for any International Patent Application validated as European Patent Application filed after March 1st, 2015 validation in Morocco may be requested against payment of a fee. European applications and patents validated for Morocco will have the same legal effects there as Moroccan applications and patents, and therefor will provide equal legal certainty as European Patents.

The number of countries covered by filing a European Patent Application rises up to 41. A European Patent Application will become attractive to new marketplaces and new patent strategies.
