It is necessary

an application for a patent, the necessary information about the invention, a receipt for the payment of state duty


Step 1

Before starting to file a patent for your invention, you should establish whether it is indeed the subject of patent rights. That is, it will be necessary to conduct an examination of the novelty of the invention.

Step 2

After you have made sure that your invention is suitable for the subject of patenting, the circle of people to whom this patent can be issued is determined. This can be the author of the product, a legal entity (company or team of authors), or an employer.

Step 3

Having decided on the owner of the patent, we proceed to writing an application for the grant of a patent. In the application, the application itself is written, as well as all the necessary documents on the invention (diagrams, plans, drawings, etc.) are attached. This is one of the hardest parts of getting a patent.

Step 4

After registration of the application, all documents are sent to the Federal Service for Intellectual Property, Patents and Trademarks - Rospatent. There they go through a verification procedure, as a result of which you get a refusal to patent or, if everything goes well, a long-awaited patent. Refusal of patent is possible only if your invention does not fit under the subject of patent rights.

Step 5

After the grant of a patent, Rospatent enters your invention into the State Register, publishing information about it in its bulletin.

Step 6

Do not forget that in Russia a patent is valid for industrial designs, utility models and inventions for a certain period of time. Thus, a patent for an invention is valid for 20 years after filing an application, for a utility model, a patent lasts 10 years, for an industrial design - 15. Therefore, it is important to immediately start using your invention, and not put it on the back burner. Moreover, if after 4 years you still did not use your invention without good reason, by a court decision it can be mastered by another person interested in using it.
