Tips & Notes


 The main criteria of review for the assignment of patent rights are:

  • submission of form Π.3;
  • payment of fee;
  • assignment / transfer agreement which must include:
    • names and addresses of the parties;
    • reference to the patent for which the assignment is taking place;
    • assignment / merger date;
    • signatures of the parties.

Important notice: if the transfer date is within 9 months from the date that the patent is granted in EPO diploma, the EPO Form 2544 form which replaces the agreement may be accepted.

  • in case where the agreement is not a true copy, it must be accompanied and certified by a Competent Authority as a true copy;
  • certified translation of the agreement, if it is in a language other than Greek, either by a affidavit or by a sworn translator of the Republic of Cyprus;
  • power of attorney (form Π.8) from the Assignee.

Most common reasons for rejection of forms

  • failure to submit a transfer agreement or EPO form 2544;
  • failure to submit the power of attorney by form Π.8 by the Assignee.

It is noted that in case of omission of completion / submission of the above data / documents, a relevant letter is sent for submission of the data that are missing within a specified period.
