Hosted by Chris Goddard on 25 June 2020, this webinar is the first in a two part series covering Supplementary Protection Certificates.

A Supplementary Protection Certificate (SPC) is a form of intellectual property that can extend the protection of patented active ingredients present in pharmaceutical or plant protection products by up to five years. In this webinar, we cover an introduction to SPCs, along with the basics of obtaining an SPC, its term and scope of protection.
