Supplementary Protection Certificates

If you have a pharmaceutical product, or something requiring regulatory approval, a Supplementary Protection Certificate (SPC) is extremely valuable. It allows you to extend patent safeguards by up to five and a half years.

At Abel & Imray, we’re proud of our track record in securing SPCs. In fact, we’re one of the UK’s most frequent filers of SPC patents. Offering a wealth of collective experience, our dedicated bioscience and pharma team is perfectly placed to negotiate different European countries’ individual requirements. And we can also suggest patent filing strategies to make the best use of SPCs – maximising the protection for your most important products.

For more information, contact Paul Brady or your usual Abel & Imray attorney.
