European Patent Validation in the Czech Republic
Protection before Grant
Under Article 67(1) EPC, from the date of its publication, a European Patent application provisionally confers with the applicant such protection as is conferred by Article 64 EPC in the contracting states designated in the application as published, i.e. the same rights would be conferred by a Czech-granted patent, if translation is provided and administrative fee for translation is paid.
European Patent Validation requirements
After the grant, European Patent must be validated. In accordance with the Czech patent law, translation of the patent specification into Czech must be supplied under the conditions provided for in Art. 65(1) EPC. Furthermore, an applicant with neither residency nor principal place of business in the territory of the Czech Republic must be represented by a patent attorney.
