Your PCT application

The Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) application process begins with filing an international application through a receiving office. For applicants in Denmark, Norway, Iceland, and Sweden, this happens at the National Patent Offices (see links below) or directly with the International Bureau of WIPO.

Applicants filing at one of the national Receiving Offices must use the office in the country of which they are a national or resident. The two-letter code for using Nordic Patent Institute is XN.

Demands for Nordic Patent Institute to act as an IPEA should be filed directly at the Institute at the address in Taastrup, Denmark. See contact information.

For more detailed guidance on the PCT application process, please visit the WIPO Applicant’s Guide.
