1 How a patent is granted? on Fri Oct 20, 2017 12:56 pm


Make an application to the Intellectual Property Office using the prescribed form P1( see the regulations). You have to submit a document with the application form describing your invention clearly and completely and the claims. Pay the prescribed fee. ( refer to the regulations for fees). You must submit a search report prepared by an international searching authority or alternatively request the IP Office to forward your invention to a local examiner for search and report.

The IP Office will examine your application as to the formal requirements. If formal requirements are fulfilled and the international type search report is available the patent will be granted. The invention will be published before grant if an international type search report is not available.
