We handle all validations of European Patents in Iceland. A validation process is required in order for a European patent to become valid in Iceland. When a European patent has been issued, the owner has four months to file a translation to validate it nationally. If the patent is in English, title and claims have to be translated to Icelandic. If the patent is in French or German, however, an English translation of the description and any text in figures must also be filed. Our translations are performed by experts who are specialized within different fields, text types, and language combinations to ensure the outmost quality. The validation process requires specialized knowledge of formalities, filing requirements and language, as well as unified routines.
Clients represented by GH Sigurgeirsson Intellectual Property do not have to file a Power of Attorney to the Icelandic Intellectual Property Office.
