What do I need to know about filing a patent application?

How should I proceed if I have invented something?

It is very important that you do not make your invention public until you have a patent application. Any disclosure (conference, exhibition, offer, etc.) can forestall the novelty of your invention and prevent its patentability. Therefore, always apply for a patent first and then present your invention publicly.

What does the patent application process involve?

Any new and inventive technical solution to a technical problem can be protected by a patent.

How do I apply for the patent?

Both technical documents describing the subject matter to be protected and formal documents must be filed with the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property, and the corresponding official fees must be paid.

What must be included in the technical documents?

The technical documents must describe the invention in sufficient detail so that a specialist can understand it. In addition, claims must be formulated. These claims describe precisely and in often complicated language the exact subject matter for which protection is sought.

The preparation of technical documents is a complicated task that must be carried out with precision and the necessary knowledge in the field of patents. A poorly worded application is often beyond salvaging.

In addition, the application must be as complete as possible at the time of submission, as it is not possible to subsequently add information.

How long does it take for a patent to be granted?

It usually takes three to four years for a patent to be granted. However, as of the filing date, you can disclose your invention, and you are provisionally protected. It is also possible to accelerate the procedure, if necessary.
