Patents – Romania

The validation of​​ a European patent in Romania is obtained in the following steps:

  1. As the patent owner, you must​ ​​provide the Romanian Patent Officero (OSIM) with a Romanian translation of the patent specification and pay the statutory publication fee, within 3 months of the date on which the European patent is published in the European Patent Bulletin

    Should you fail to supply the translation within 3 months, you can still file the translation with OSIM within a further 3-month period, provided that you pay an additional fee.

  2. OSIM will publish the Romanian translation of the specification of the European patent in its Official Industrial Property Bulletin
  3. OSIM must certify that a European patent is valid in Romania
