Turkey is a member country of European Patent Convention. For the validity of a European Patent Registration also in Turkey, its European Patent Validation in Turkey is required.
Validation of a European patent in an EPC member country becomes valid with payment of official fees, and submission of a translation in one of the official languages of the related country to the subject country office within 3 months of publication of the European patent registration in the bulletin. This period is 6 months for Ireland. But, in order to reduce the translation costs covered by the applicants, some countries have waived this translation obligation, in whole or in part. The countries that “completely” waive the translation obligation are France, Germany, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. It should not be forgotten that in countries where translation is required, validation times are applied strictly and it cannot be compensated once the time runs out.
A European Patent registered in the European Patent Office (EPO) may be valid with the validation process in Turkey.
For Validation of a European Patent in Turkey;
Within three months of the publication of the notification by the European Patent Office (EPO) about patent, the application for approval of the translation of the patent to the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office should be done. You will also need to pay an approval fee. KORDINAT is directly authorized in European Patent Validation for protection of European Patent Registration in Turkey.
