We are the European Patent Validation service.

IP Centrum is the market-leading provider of Single-Instruction European Patent Validation - especially designed for IP Formalities people.

What we do

At IP Centrum we provide a Single-Instruction European Patent Validation service.

Our network of national agents covers all EPO member, extension and validation states and is centrally managed which means you place one instruction, deal with one contact and pay one invoice. You enjoy all the benefits of national local expertise and specialist translation while we greatly reduce the administrative burden.

IP Centrum is independent and therefore not associated with any IP firm. We can operate as your personal secret weapon, invisibly in the background, or we can partner with you to help you secure new clients, and our flexibility means you can work with us on a single patent, a single country, or your entire portfolio.
