  • European Validation

  • PCT National Phase Entry

  • Direct Filing

If you have a granted European patent, you need to validate the patent in each European country where you seek patent protection. We enable you to validate your patent in over 40 countries with just one instruction. 

Our comprehensive EP package includes: 

  • Translation of claims for EP Publication in accordance with the 71(3) communication. 
  • Translation for national validation upon issue of EPO form 2006. 
  • National validation of translations and acting as address for service, if required. 

We adapt our EP service to your processes and requirements. Contact us today to learn more about our customized EP services. Find out how inovia can help with your EP order.
