The Industrial Property Office of SR announces changes in processes in issuing protective documents of translations of European patent specifications with designation for the Slovak Republic from July 1, 2015. The Office shall send only title pages with basic bibliographic data to owners or their authorised representatives. Translations of European patent specifications with designation for the Slovak Republic shall be published on the web site of the Office and available also in the Patent Library of the Office.
The Industrial Property office of SR has changed its approach to the concentrated proceedings regarding the patents – it is now possible for the parties to submit more evidence supporting the claims he patent proceedings even after the first submissions have been made. Previously, it was not allowed to submit more evidence after a motion was filed.
