The Japan Patent Office (JPO) and the Intellectual Property Office of Viet Nam (IP Viet Nam) (or the NOIP at the time) commenced the PPH pilot program on 1 April 2016.

As from April 1, 2019, the JPO and the IP Viet Nam will double the maximum number of requests for the PPH Pilot Program that IP Viet Nam accepts from 100 to 200 per year (the maximum number of requests per half a year will be limited to 100) and that they will extend the period of the program for another three years.

For the number of requests for the PPH Pilot Program filed with the JPO, as with before, no limits are imposed.
