National information, fees & costs

Here you may find all the essential information regarding our European patent validation service. In the first chart you will see the Member States in which your European patent can be validated without filing a translation. Here we request only a service fee and disbursements for the administrative work.

In the second chart, you can study the countries (with the associated fees), where only the patent claims of the European patent need to be filed. For such an act the respective Offices require a Power of Attorney, which we will provide you as soon as you ordered our European patent validation service. Pintz & Partners LLC requests a flat rate of €190 / €250 for each country. The official fees are determined by the respective Offices, and depend usually on number of pages. Our translation service is offered on a 100 words/€ basis, where the minimum 400 words are counted. Disbursements are between €25 and €35 depending on the necessary administrative work required by the relevant Office.

In the third chart you may find those countries, whose national Offices require full translations of the European patents, granted by the European Patent Office. Translation rates and disbursements are determined as written before.

Should you need any further information regarding our European patent validation service, please do not hesitate to contact us via info@epvalidation.net

 

If you pay by bank card, we give you a discount of 10€ from the Disbursments, for each selected country!
