MaltaAbout Validation in Malta

This page contains information about European Patent Validation in Malta, including the local regulations, and filing requirements.

  • Power of Attorney

    Prior To Validation?
    Copy / Original?
    ORIGINAL REQUIRED (* see below)
    General PoA?

    * For patents with an English language of proceedings, no validation is required, but to appoint an "Address For Service" a copy of the Power of Attorney is acceptable.

    A Power of Attorney must be filed in favour of a locally appointed professional representative. This can be a specific or a general authorisation, the latter being recommended as it simplifies the procedure for future validations by the same applicant.

  • Translations

    For patents with an English language of proceedings, no translations are required.

    For patents with a French or German language of proceedings, the Title, Claims, Description and Drawings are required to be translated into either English or Maltese.

  • Filing Deadline

    For patents with a French or German language of proceedings, the validation must be filed within three months following the European Grant Date.

    For patents with an English language of proceedings no validation is required and there is therefore no deadline. It is considered good practice to appoint a qualified local Agent as "Address For Service", who will receive and interpret any correspondence from the local National Patent Office, and communicate as necessary.

    At IP Centrum, we operate a network of qualified agents, and routinely appoint them as "Address For Service" on behalf our clients.
