Patents – Romania
The validation of a European patent in Romania is obtained in the following steps:
- As the patent owner, you must provide the ro (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.
- OSIM will publish the Romanian translation of the specification of the European patent in its Official Industrial Property Bulletin
- OSIM must certify that a European patent is valid in Romania
