    Patents and utility models

    If you have filed a patent or utility model application with our office, you can submit changes to identification details, such as the agent’s or applicant’s name or address, by emailing our Registry at registry@prh.fi. Where necessary, attach a copy of the document, with signatures, which the change is based on. Remember to indicate the application number when you submit the change. If you are making changes to several applications, submit the change separately for each application.

    Changes concerning granted patents or registered utility models can be submitted in the same way. Please note that in this case you have to pay a fee for the entry in the Patent Register or the Utility Model Register. Change of address is free of charge. Go to patents price list or utility models price list.

    For more information, please contact our Advisory Service.

    We start the processing of an application by ensuring that the application contains all necessary documents and that the application fee has been paid. If that is not the case, we will send you a letter, which is called an office action, and give you a deadline for your reply. Your answer must contain corrections to the deficiencies listed in the letter.

    Changes to your details on the Trademark Register

    It is important to keep your details on the register up-to-date, as we rely on the register when reminding proprietors of due mark renewals about 4–6 months before the due date. Please notify us if the proprietor's name, company form, address, or other similar details change to ensure that you receive notices from our office. Read more.
