*Unlike PCT cases, assignments are required
for convention filings and can be filed later by
means of an office action.
A certified copy of the priority document must be filed within 3 months from the application filing date.
A certified Spanish translation of the priority document is also required and should be submitted at the time of filing the application. Late filing of the translation is possible but will result in a late fee, which varies depending if the translation was voluntarily filed late or in response to a requirement from the patent office. Late fees are invoiced by the agent.
