On 26 October 2011, the Republic of Moldova deposited a notification of denunciation of the Eurasian Patent Convention

On 26 October 2011, the Republic of Moldova deposited a notification of denunciation of the Eurasian Patent Convention, which will take effect on 26 April 2012. This denunciation will not affect granted Eurasian patents or PCT applications filed before 26 April 2012 containing the designation of the Republic of Moldova for a Eurasian patent; these patents and applications will continue to have full effect.

However, as a result of the denunciation, any international application filed on or after 26 April 2012 will contain the designation of the Republic of Moldova only for a national patent, and will not include the designation of that State for a Eurasian patent. In this connection Applicants being interested in a legal protection in the Republic of Moldova in respect of new inventions or any international applications already filed on or after 26 April 2012 should file a patent application (enter the national phase) in the Republic of Moldova.
