Grant of a patent

If we approve your patent application, we first ask you to pay a publication fee and then a patent specification will be printed of your application. Go to our price lists .

Your patent will be granted as soon as the specification is printed. We grant your patent by publishing it in the B section of our Patent Gazette that is published twice a month. Go to our Patent Gazette.

You can buy the patent specification from us as soon as the patent has been granted. Please note that you have free direct access to the specification through our PatInfo online service. Later on, the specification will also be freely available online in the Espacenet patent database. Go to PatInfo.
