Accelerated Patent Examination
Zuykov and Partners will assist in drafting and filing an application for registration of invention, utility model or industrial design and will handle correspondence with the Patent Office before obtaining a patent in Russia.
Fast track registration
Standard registration takes 6-8 months from the date of filing an application to the grant of a patent for a utility model, 10-12 months for an industrial design and 12-14 months for an invention. If the applicant wants to speed up the process, the company's lawyers are able to put in additional efforts and register technical solutions in an accelerated procedure.
Reduction of the term of the patent examination
This is achieved due to the patent search procedure carried out by specialists of Rospatent in a short time. Using this procedure, the applicant will receive the first correspondence from the Patent Office regarding utility models or designs no later than 2 months from the date of filing, and regarding inventions within 1 month.
Accelerated Patent Search → 10 business days.
The cost of the procedure depends on the number of IPC classes required to search for utility models and inventions or ICID groups for industrial designs. The list is determined by the Rospatent expert at the stage of preparation for the search. As a result, the applicant receives information about the patent search in Russian and foreign databases.
Depending on which patenting object the technical solution is claimed, examination of documents and making a decision in the Patent Office takes 6-8 months for utility models, 12-14 months for inventions, and 10-12 months for industrial designs. It is also possible to accelerate the standard period of substantive examination of the technical solution at the request of the applicant. The inventor fills out and submits an application to the Patent Office and attaches a receipt for payment of the state fee for accelerated examination in this regard. After that, the period of substantive examination will be reduced to 10 days.
