There are two ways to extend patent protection: by way of an extension of the patent term (for example as in United States of America); or by way of an extension of protection of the product (for example the Supplementary Protection Certificate (SPC) in Europe). These extensions are generally allowed due to a delay in the issuance of a patent or a delay in commercialising a product due to the lengthy process to obtain regulatory approval for a product.
