Introduction to JEGPE

Joint Expert Group for Patent Examination (JEGPE) project was established in 2009 in order to promote patent cooperation among JPO, KIPO and CNIPA. The trilateral offices conduct a comparative study on patent laws and examination guidelines and a comparative case study on a chosen topic every year, so the users can deeply understand the examination standards on their practices and prepare high quality patent applications. So far, JEGPE has conducted comparative study on inventive step, novelty and the protection of utility models.
