Intellectual Property Rights
- To make your European patent valid in Norway, it is necessary to have designated Norway in your European patent application.
- To validate your patent in Norway, the following conditions must also be met:
- The validation fee must be paid within the prescribed time limit. You will receive an invoice for the amount (including pages with drawings and sequence listings) from NIPO with a one month deadline.
- Norwegian and foreign applicants and patent owners are required to provide NIPO with an address to which notifications may be sent. If using an agent, a Power of Attorney must be submitted to NIPO (ref. Patent Act § 67).
- Once the patent has been disclosed in Norway, the same regulations apply as for a national patent. This means that you must pay annual fees to NIPO every year to uphold the patent.
