This brings the number of PCT members to 149.PCT filers will be able to designate Kuwait starting on September 9, 2016.  It will be recalled that if one prepares one’s PCT Request using the standard Request form, all available offices are automatically designated.  So nearly all PCT filers will be designating Kuwait, whether they know it or not, starting on September 9, 2016.

The two-letter code for Kuwait is “KW”.

    1. (To learn about the Gulf Cooperation Council, click here.) As far as I know, we don’t know.

      I know that for many, many years there has been talk that the GCC might eventually join one or more of the cooperation treaties (PCT, Madrid, Hague). It would certainly be good for applicants.
