New PCT Contracting State
Jordan (country code: JO)
On 9 March 2017, Jordan deposited its instrument of accession to the PCT, thus becoming the 152nd Contracting State of the PCT, and on 9 June 2017, will become bound by the PCT. Consequently, any international application filed on or after 9 June 2017 will automatically include the designation of Jordan. Also, because Jordan will be bound by Chapter II of the PCT, it will automatically be elected in any demand filed in respect of an international application filed on or after 9 June 2017.
Furthermore, nationals and residents of Jordan will be entitled, as from 9 June 2017, to file international applications under the PCT.
