Trade mark

The Patent Office of the Republic of Poland grants the right of protection of a trade mark in Poland. The Office examines the conditions of filling, the absolute grounds of refusal and the collision with earlier trade marks (Polish and Community trademarks). The procedure takes about 1 - 1,5 year. The trade mark is granted for 10 years. After this period it has to be renewed. The official fees are divided between filing fee, which is due when filing and protection fee, which is due after the granting decision is issued. Foreign citizens and entities must be represented by a licenced patent attorney during the procedure before the Patent Office.

EP Validation

We provide services of validation of European Patents in Poland at competitive prices.

The Polish translation of EP must be filed within 3 months from mention of the grant or the decision to maintain the patent as amended is published in the European Patent Bulletin ( usually B1).

We co-operate with translators providing technical translations from English, German and French.

Patents and Utility Models

The Polish Patent Office grants patents and utility models. The patent is granted for 20 years the utility model is granted for ten years from the filing date. Fot both rights the procdure and the filing fee is the same. The patent is granted within 4-5 years, the utility model is granted within 3 - 4 years. After the granting decision is issued, the mainanance fees and the publication fee must be paid. The certificate will be issued after the payment of the fees. The maintanance fees are to be paid yearly for patents and every three or two years for utility models. Foreign citizens and entities must be represented by a licenced patent attorney during the procedure before the Patent Office.
