EP Validation

EP Validation is the process of converting a single granted European Patent Application into a national patent in one or more of the 42 European Patent Organisation member, extension and validation states.

The validation process typically involves high quality, technically-qualified translation of all or part of the patent, the payment of fees and the filing of documents within a certain timeframe – usually three months from the European Grant Date.

Obtaining an EP validation

Once the European Patent Office (EPO) has issued a communication under Rule 71(3), the validation requirements must generally be met within a three-month period from the European grant date. Typically, the process requires filing IP forms, performing translations of the patent specification in some countries (full or part), paying official fees and fulfilling any additional formalities in accordance with the prescribed deadlines and requirements in each country.
