Filing requirements

An application for validation of European Patents in Romania must be filed within three months counted from the date of Publication of the mention of the Granted Patent.

In case of the European Patents which have the filing date on or after 1 March 2003, an extension of three months to the initial term is possible under condition of payment of an additional fee.

Once the European patent has been granted, INVENTA takes care of the entire validation process: preparing the translation of the claims, description, drawings and sequences according to the national requirements, preparing the application and paying the official fees.

The client has to provide us with the number of the European Patent only and we obtain from the EPO online file inspection all the necessary documents.
Power of Attorney must be filed in our favour. This can be a specific or general authorization, the latter being recommended in order to simplify the procedure of future validation in the name of the same applicant.
