Country notes

    *The power of Attorney does not require legalization at filing. It can be filed within 60 days of the filing of the application. After 60 days have passed a late fee will apply, and will be invoiced directly by the agent. The agent may request legalization of the POA at a later date in case they are required to represent the client in court.

    **Assignments can be filed within 90 days of the filing of the application. After 90 days have passed a late fee will apply, which will be invoiced directly by the agent.

  • Certified copy and simple Spanish translation of the priority document are required. The translation of the priority documents can be filed within 90 days after the filing of the application. After 90 days have passed, a late fee will apply and will be invoiced by the agent directly.

  • The translation of the specification can be filed within 90 days of the filing of the application. After 90 days have passed a late fee will apply, which inovia will invoice the client if invoices are generated within 3 weeks of the deadline.

  • The Chilean Patent Office may request a submission of the assignment before the late filing deadline if the document has not been lodged by the time preliminary examination is performed.
