Patent Registration

Patents are invaluable assets, granting you exclusive rights to your inventions for a predetermined period, typically 20 years in Albania as stipulated in Law No. 9947/2014 “On Industrial Property”. This exclusivity safeguards your competitive advantage by preventing unauthorized use, production, or sale of your invention by others, fostering innovation and technological advancement.

The Patent Registration Process in Albania:

Obtaining patent protection in Albania involves a multi-step process overseen by the General Directorate of Industrial Property (DPPI):

  1. Filing: The process begins with filing a patent application with the DPPI, which includes details like the inventor’s information, a description of the invention, and claims outlining the scope of protection sought. This must adhere to the requirements outlined in Law No. 9947/2008.
  2. Formal Examination: The DPPI conducts a formal examination to ensure the application adheres to legal requirements and formatting guidelines.
  3. Novelty Search: As mandated by Law No. 9947/2008, the DPPI conducts a novelty search to assess the originality of the invention and identify any existing patents that might conflict with your application.
  4. Substantive Examination: If the novelty search is successful, the DPPI proceeds with a substantive examination to evaluate the invention’s inventive step and industrial applicability.
  5. Grant and Publication: Upon successful completion of the examination process and addressing any potential concerns raised by the DPPI, the patent is granted and published in the official industrial property bulletin.
