Amending Patent’s particulars
Correction of patent or application details
Following the filing of an application for granting a patent or the grant of a patent, you may proceed to correct a mistake in the register or on any document filed in relation to the patent, such as, for example:
- Specifications (European Patent Specification B1)
Filing a correction
- corrigendum (Corrected European Patent Specification B8 or B9 of EPO) or relevant documents in support of the request for correction, such as a relevant letter from EPO;
- form for authorising an agent (form Π.8) in case where a power of attorney covering the said procedure has not already been filed;
- certified translation in the Greek language in case where the relevant documents are not in Greek, either by an affidavit or by sworn translator of the Republic of Cyprus; and
- the fee of one hundred euros (€100) payable in n cash, by cheque, via an account maintained with the Department of the Registrar of Companies and Intellectual Property or via bank transfer).
Correction in the patent text is not allowed, unless by such correction it is obvious that no other thing would have been implied except that provided by the correction.
You are advised to refer to the main criteria of review so as to acquire a better understanding what is required and to facilitate the process further.
Provided that the Intellectual Property Section is satisfied that all, relevant to the circumstances, legal requirements have been met,he will proceeds with the filing of the correction, the updating of the patents register and, in case of correction of a registered patent, the publication of certain elements.
In case of correction in the the text of a registered patent, the Registrar proceeds to the publication of the correction and in such case, any person may, within 3 months from the date of the said publication, submit with the Registrar a relevant objection to a patent publication (Form Π.6).
In case you wish to secure the issue of certified copies, you can submit a request for obtaining certified copies of a patent.
