Canadian Patent Update: Patented Medicines (Notice of Compliance) Regulations

On June 19th the amendments to the Patented Medicines (Notice of Compliance) regulations were registered and came into force. As noted previously these amended regulations are due to inconsistency with the original intent of the PM(NOC) regulations which caused several patent applications claiming single medicinal ingredients in combination drugs to become ineligible.  Patents that were denied or deleted from the Patent Register between October 18, 2014 to June 19, 2015 due to this issue have 30 days from June 19th, to be resubmitted. The final amendments are expected to be published on July 1, 2015. (Privy Council Office)
