NetherlandsAbout Validation in Netherlands

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

  • London Agreement

    Netherlands is a London Agreement country, but does not share an official language with the EPO.

    For this reason, Netherlands is permitted to elect one of the three official languages of the EPO into which the patent Description must be translated, and to require the Claims to be translated into an accepted language.

    Netherlands requires the Description to be translated into English - assuming the patent is not already in English - and the Claims into Dutch.

  • Power of Attorney

    No Power of Attorney is required.

  • Translations

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

    In all cases, the Title, Abstract and Claims must be translated into Dutch.

  • Filing Deadline

    The validation must be filed within three months following the European Grant Date.
