As of Today Validation of European Patents has Become Possible in Georgia

The Agreement between the Government of Georgia and the European Patent Organisation on Validation of European Patents entered into force. From January 15, 2024, it will be possible to validate European patent applications and patents granted by the European Patent Office (EPO) in Georgia.

It is noteworthy that the European Patent Office (EPO) is the second largest public service institution in Europe. The European Patent Organisation has 39 member states, comprising all, 27 member states of the European Union, and also non-EU member states. In addition, 1 country has the extension status and 4 countries have the validation status.

From today, Georgia will be the 5th country with the validation status and the 45th country where patent protection will be possible on the basis of a European patent application. From January 15, European patent applications and patents validated in Georgia under the Validation Agreement will have the same legal effect and be subject to the same legal conditions as are defined for a national patent application and a national patent. Read more
