International patent applications

International patent applications

Patent filing PCT

The Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) is an international agreement allowing you to file a single application in one language and get an international filing date. That means the application is considered as filed in all the PCT contracting states, more than 140, on that date.

A PCT application itself does not lead to a patent, rather to an international search and a written opinion regarding patentability. After that, you decide which countries you wish to proceed with your application. In most cases, you must proceed with your PCT application in an individual country within 30 months of the priority date. PCT application can be submitted promptly through us at Hynell electronically. PRV presents a detailed description of how the process works and how much it costs.
