Euro-PCT Applications

The European Patent Office also accepts international applications under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT). Before the end of the international phase the Applicant must decide whether to proceed with the international application in the regional phase before the EPO. This process includes a series of steps to be taken and is generally referred to as "entry into the European phase" whereas such applications are called Euro-PCT applications.

Our European patent attorneys take all necessary steps for the entry into the European phase. Alternatively, you may decide to proceed with the international application in the national phase before the Turkish patent institute (TPE), if you are seeking protection only in Turkey. European patent attorneys can draft your Euro-PCT patent applications in accordance with the requirements of the PCT/EPC, file your Euro-PCT applications with the receiving office of the EPO, and represent you in all proceedings throughout the international phase and the regional phase before the EPO.
