The Japan Patent Office (JPO) and the Egyptian Patent Office (EGYPO) started the PPH pilot program on June 1, 2015 and has extended the trial period for three more years since 1 June 2017.

Both offices agree to commence the PPH MOTTAINAI and the PCT-PPH additionally and start accepting requests under these two programs as from June 1, 2020, in order to relax eligibility requirements for the PPH.
