This bit of news sort of snuck up on me. Only today did I catch on that five days ago, the Iranian patent office (formally known as the Intellectual Property Center (IPC) of the Islamic Republic of Iran) became a Depositing Office in the DAS system for two kinds of priority documents.
Yes, on August 1, 2022, the Iranian patent office became a Depositing Office in the DAS system for:
- National patent applications
- PCT international applications
Normally when I post news like this, I try to find the logo of the patent office involved and include it as part of the blog post. Unfortunately, just now the web site of the Iranian patent office (at https://iripo.ssaa.ir/) is not responding. Hopefully later I will be able to obtain the logo and add it to this blog post.
