National Phase Entry in
Inventions and Utility Models
The registration of intellectual property rights is made by the Federal Intellectual Property Service, also known as Rospatent.
The registration procedure is set out in our laws and consists of several stages which include filing the application with the patent office formal examination and substantive examination by Rospatent comprising checking the novelty, inventive step and industrial applicability after which the patent will be issued, if examination goes well. Before filing the application, we recommend that a patent search be made and that the application is carefully prepared on the basis of the search results.
Types of Patents
Today the Russian law suggests three types of patents valid in the Russia:
- Utility model
