International Patent Application - PCT Application

The International Patent Application is as it were a bundled application of many national or regional patent applications - the European Patent Application is once such regional application since it applies for an entire region - and forms a uniform application process.

You select the country of your patent process

The applicant is free to determine in which countries he would then like to conduct the examination process for his patent application. The examination process should be initiated in a time-limited manner after a certain time has expired. The European Patent Office itself recommends that this should be taken care of by a licensed representative or patent attorney as a result of the complexity of the process.

The examination of the patent application which leads to granting of the patent is then conducted before the patent office of the country or region selected by the applicant which is responsible for examining the application. You as applicant therefore always have control over the countries for which your patent should be valid. Naturally I will assist you with the question of which application process is appropriate based on the countries you have selected and which is the most cost-effective.
