* 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.
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.
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.

Sally was one of the first. It was bold and - even she admits - scary. But the cumulative value HGF has delivered to its clients and partners over the years are a direct result of that early foresight.
Anne gets it. In IP formalities, anything less than 100% means failure. She believes Tata Steel's IP deserves perfection, which is why Anne puts in place solutions before normal people even recognise a potential problem.
