The Argentinean PTO has recently announced that it will shortly put into place a new Resolution, for an "Internal PPH", by means of which applicants will be able to accelerate the examination of their applications by adapting the claim set of their Argentinean patent applications so as to conform with the claim set of any foreign equivalent granted patent that has undergone substantive examination.  If the claim set of the Argentinean application has been amended so as to correspond with or be narrower in scope than the granted foreign equivalent, the PTO will then proceed to examine the application within a short period of time, and if the claim set is found to be in order, the application will proceed to grant directly without further delay. 

 

The PTO is in the process of adapting its internal procedures so as to be able to apply this Resolution efficiently and quickly.
