Nordic Patent Institute maintains high quality of work without compromising on deadlines

Nikolay D. Nikolov, European Patent Attorney, Bryn Aarflot AS

Recently, Nordic Patent Institute has more often been chosen by me or some of my colleagues as International Search Authority (ISA) and/or International Preliminary Examination Authority (IPEA).

The reasons for doing so are several:

  • Nordic Patent Institute holds high quality for novelty searches and patentability assessments not only in the oil and gas industry, but also in several other technology areas, such as, but not limited to, medical equipment, GreenTech, electricity, electronics and software.
  • The Institute keeps the prescribed time limits, which is of great importance for applicants.
  • The examiners have sufficient knowledge and awareness of industries in the North and are easy to reach for discussion of a case.
  • Last but not least, I am of the opinion that their services are quite efficient and reliable as well as less bureaucratic.

Therefore, I will definitely continue to use Nordic Patent Institute for searching and evaluating PCT applications.
