Obtaining an EP validation

Once the European Patent Office (EPO) has issued a communication under Rule 71(3), the validation requirements must generally be met within a three-month period from the European grant date. Typically, the process requires filing IP forms, performing translations of the patent specification in some countries (full or part), paying official fees and fulfilling any additional formalities in accordance with the prescribed deadlines and requirements in each country.
