The EURO-PCT Route in Turkey
As an option, , European Patent Application may be filed as an extension of a PCT application if the international application designates the EPO. If applicant desires to select several countries in Europe, considering that the Turkish attorneys’ professional fees are considerably reasonable than the European colleagues, such a route would be cost-effective.
We only require the number of the international application and amendments to be filed with the national phase application (if any) with your written instructions when the European phase of a PCT application is to be initiated.
In cases where the international search authority (ISA) is other than the EPO, the Swedish Patent Office or the Austrian Patent Office, a request for a supplementary European search shall be filed with the EP regional phase application.
