The process takes only a few minutes.

The Patent Pending Number application will automatically be filed with a Patent Office of a country that is a member of the "Paris Convention for the Protection of Industrial Property". Within a business day, you will receive an official Patent Pending Number, which you may use in all 177 Paris Convention member countries:

Algeria, Angola, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bangladesh, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Botswana, Brazil, Bulgaria, Cambodia, Cameroon, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Ivory Coast, Croatia, Cuba, Cyprus, Czech Republic, D.R. Congo, Denmark, Egypt, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Kuwait, Latvia, Lebanon, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malawi, Malaysia, Mexico, Monaco, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Pakistan, Panama, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, S. Korea, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Serbia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Sweden, Switzerland, Syria, Thailand, Tunisia, Turkey, Uganda, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States of America, Uruguay, Uzbekistan, Viet Nam, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Your Patent Pending Number details will be added to an online official Patent Office Register. Customers and competitors can visit this official register, input your Patent Pending Number and confirm the number, title, and applicant and inventor details. However, they won't have access to your Patent Pending document.

What next?

Nothing, unless you want to. Your Patent Pending application will not be examined. In a year's time, the Patent Pending Number will simply lapse. No further actions are required from you, and no further costs are incurred. However, should you wish to get a "granted patent", you will need to engage a patent attorney to draft and file a "complete patent" by the expiry of the 12 month period.
