Where inovia fits in the process

EP Process

European validation overview

Once a notice of intention to grant (also referred to as a 71(3) notice) has been issued from the European Patent Office (EPO), a translation of the granted claims must be lodged and the required fees paid to the EPO. You should complete this step however you presently manage it. Typically, if you’re the applicant you’ll get your current European representative to do this.

Once these steps are complete, the European patent is granted. You can then use to validate the patent in each of your chosen European countries.
