Country notes

    *Before a patent is granted, a translation of the claims into Norwegian has to be filed if originally filed in English. It is recommended to do this just prior to grant.

  • For PCT applications filed after January 2008, Norway is included in EPO filing.

  • Excess claims fee: NOK 200 per claim over 10

  • Small entity status: companies with less than 20 employees do not have to pay the examination fee, and pay NOK 300 less for the Basic Fee. Total savings of about USD 650.
