European Patent validation in Poland
How to validate European Patent in Poland?
The European patents granted by the European Patent Office take effect in designated countries of the European Patent Convention upon fulfilling requirements of the national laws. An European patent designating Poland has legal effect only upon its validation according to applicable provisions of law.
The procedure of validation of the European patent in Poland requires filing of the Polish translation of the granted patent within three months from the publication of the grant of the European patent in the European Patent Bulletin. It is vital to assign validation of the European patent to professionals specialising in the particular field the patent covers. An inaccurate translation could have detrimental implications on the extent of patent protection. We strongly advise to entrust validation of European patents to reliable source.
We offer the validation services on competitive terms. All translations are made either personally by a Patent Attorney – expert in the field or by a experienced translator chosen for their expertise in accurate translation involving the particular field. These are always carefully double-checked by a Patent Attorney.
The following documents are necessary to proceed with validation: granted version of the European Patent (or the Text intended for Grant / Druckexemplar), signed Power of Attorney and the written acceptance of our terms of the validation service.
It is worth to note, that before European patent is granted, a provisional protection conferred by a European patent application may be secured. In order to obtain provisional protection, the translation of the claims into Polish language must be filed following the domestic publication. For proceeding with obtaining provisional protection we need the number of European patent application, the text of claims as published by EPO and, as always, a Power of Attorney document.
