What if I want to file patents in several countries?

To protect your invention in various nations, you will have two options to move ahead. First, you can prepare and file your application directly in those countries of interest. Second, you can do it with the help of PCT (Patent Cooperation Treaty). You can decide the right method to apply based on numerous factors such time to protect your invention, maturity, funding stage, etc.

You can go with the first method only if you complete everything, be it funding your application, or other related things. Meanwhile, PCT is the most convenient method to file your application. To file your application through PCT, you need to go through multiple steps.

1. Filing

To start the process, you need to file your PCT application first. After completing it successfully, you need to find the patent office that can review your claims made in the application.

2. Search

Now the role of the International Search Authority (ISA) begins. They perform a patent search to find the relevant existing patents, research papers and documents related to the patent that challenge your application's novelty. They offer you a complete international search report that helps you determine the possibility to secure your patent in your targeted countries. The ISA publishes the report within 18 months from the date of filing your application.

Why is patent filing important has many reasons like a patent gives you a complete safeguard of your invention & a patent prevents you from letting your hard work go in vain.

3. Supplement Search

You get the right for supplemental search on the course of the international phase too. Apart from this, you can also modify your claims.

4. Nationalization

You should process to nationalize your application within 30 months from the priority date. During this period, you can nationalize your application in the countries that you desire to get the patent right.

5. Foreign Prosecution

Your every nationalized application will adhere to country-specific rules and regulations. It follows the process to grant the prosecution.
