Independent Patents: Documents Required

As per the Iranian registry new regulations, all required documents must be filed together with the application. Furthermore, recently the Registration Office uses an on-line system for the patent applications. However, as this practice is new, often the computerized filing system of the Registration Office does not work properly. For filing an independent patent application the following documents/information are needed:

  • Specifications, claims and abstract in English and drawings, if any;
  • A Power of Attorney in the name of the Applicant legalized up to the Iranian Consulate;
  • Extract/attestation containing information about Applicant Company (Reg. No. business activity, etc.) as above.

NOTE: Although filing of independent patent applications by foreign applicants is not prohibited by the Iranian Patent Law, however, for the present the Iranian Patent Office does not accept such applications from foreigners.

Please note that US applicants should refer to the Iranian Interests Section, Pakistan Embassy, in Washington D.C., for the legalization of all the necessary documents
