Country notes

    *The power of Attorney does not require legalization at filing. It can be filed within 60 days of the filing of the application. The late fee is $200.00, and will be invoiced directly by the agent. The agent may request legalization of the POA at a later date in case they are required to represent the client in court.

    **Assignments can be filed within 90 days of the filing of the application. A $200.00 late fee will apply, which will be invoiced directly by the agent.

  • Certified copy and simple Spanish translation of the priority document are required. The translation of the priority documents can be filed within 90 days after the filing of the application. A $200.00 late fee will apply and be invoiced by the agent directly.

  • The translation of the specification can be filed within 90 days of the filing of the application. A $200.00 late fee will apply, which inovia will invoice the client if invoices are generated within 3 weeks of the deadline.

  • The Chilean Patent Office may request a submission of the assignment before the late filing deadline if the document has not been lodged by the time preliminary examination is performed.
