Due to the difficulties experienced during COVID 19, Brazilian Patent Office has started to accept executed agreements on condition that some requirements are met.

Accordingly, the first requirement is to execute the agreement electronically which will be handled by two parties meaning that if the document is signed and executed electronically by only one party, it will not be accepted.

Besides, parties have to use a valid digital certificate which is issued by the competent Authorities. If the parties are foreign, Brazilian Patent Office, as an exception, will accept e-signatures once the same is electronically notarized and apostilled.
