London Agreement

Finland acceded to the London Agreement, which is a  protocol relating to the European Patent Convention. The accession took place on 1 November 2011, and after that date patent claims shall only be translated into Finnish provided that the language of the patent is English.

What we need from you

The only thing we must have from you is a written order to validate a European patent, and the application number of the patent. We recommend sending the order via email or fax. A Power of Attorney is not required.

Upon receipt of your order, we will download the patent specification and the "Decision to Grant"  form from the EPO database, and then confirm your order by email.

After a translation has been submitted to the Finnish patent office and the relevant official fee has been paid, we will email you a report with enclosures. In due course, after publication of the translated EP patent in Finland, we will email you a soft copy of the patent publication.
