European Patent Validation – What, When and How?
EP validation is the process of converting a single granted European Patent into a national patent in one or more of the 42 European Patent Organization member, extension and validation states.
The validation process typically involves high quality, technically-qualified translation of all or part of the patent, the payment of fees and the filing of documents within a certain time frame – usually three months from the European Grant Date.
The actual requirements vary between countries. Generally, there is a requirement to translate some or all of the European patent specification, to pay fees at the local patent office, and to appoint a local representative. Valet Patent Services Limited offers a central service for completing all of these steps in each of your target countries.
EP Validation Deadline
The deadline for validation in most countries is three months from the European Grant date.
