Norway is a London Agreement country, but does not share an official language with the EPO.
For this reason, Norway 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.
Norway requires the Description to be translated into English - assuming the patent is not already in English - and the Claims into Norwegian.
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. If possible the Power of Attorney should bear a company stamp and indicate the position of the signatory (if applicable).
For patents granted on or after 1 January 2015 with a French or German language of proceedings, the Description and Drawings are required to be translated into either Norwegian or English. For patents granted prior to this date, the Description and Drawings are required to be translated into Norwegian.
In all cases, the Title and Claims must be translated into Norwegian.
The validation must be filed within three months following the European Grant Date.

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.
