PCT national phase

In Hungary patents enjoy protection for 20 years from the international filing date. The maintenance is due from the first year, but only need to be paid after the Hungarian publication. The publication of the Hungarian search report may follow the publication of the application. The substantive examination should be requested within 6 months after the publication of the search report.

We request for filing a PCT national phase the following:

  • actual description, claims, abstract, drawings,
  • PCT publication with the search report,
  • IPER, if any,
  • previous variations of the claims, if any,
  • English (or German) translation of the priority copies,
  • signed Power of Attorney, without legalization.

We request for urgent filing:

  • the number of the PCT publication.

We have to file the application immediately in Hungarian. Filing the translation later than 31 months, there is a surcharge.
