* Before a patent is granted, a translation of the claims into Norwegian has to be filed if originally filed in English. It is recommended to do this just prior to grant.

** The English or Norwegian translation (in case of non-EN application) can be submitted within two months from the filing date.

*** An amendment to reduce the claims may be submitted. Any amendments made will incur additional translation costs.

• Small entity status: companies with less than 20 employees do not have to pay the examination fee, and pay a lower basic fee.
