Supplementary protection certificates

Industrial Property Office of the Slovak Republic grants supplementary protection certificates for medicinal products and for plant protection products pursuant to the Regulation (EC) No 469/2009 of European Parliament and of the Council of 6 May 2009 concerning the creation of a supplementary protection certificate for medicinal products and Regulation (EC) No 1610/96 of European Parliament and of the Council of 23 July 1996 concerning the creation of a supplementary protection certificate for plant protection products.

A supplementary protection certificate protects medicinal products and plant protection products. A supplementary protection certificate may be granted only to an owner of a basic patent or to his legal successor in title.

This period may be exceeded, when prescribed conditions are met, for another six months in case of medicinal products on which studies pursuant to experimental paediatric plan authorised by European Medicines Agency (EMEA) have been performed.
