On 15 August 2014, the Argentine Patent Office issued Resolution No. 187/2014. According to this Resolution, the owners of all patent applications filed before 1 January 2013, and which claimed priority from at least one foreign application, will need to provide the Patent Office with the status of the priority application. In the event that more than one priority is claimed, it will only be necessary to provide the status of the oldest application. Failure to provide this information within 90 days from the date of publication of this Regulation in the Official Journal (which is expected to take place shortly) will result in the abandonment of the Argentine application.
