A patent document is a legal instrument and is therefore required to be translated into Turkish language with great precision and accuracy under the supervision of qualified patent attorneys. Incorrect translations may result in irrevocable problems when a patent holder enforce patent rights against infringers. We recommend you to employ services of experienced and reliable patent attorneys, working with only qualified professional patent translators for patent matters.

Once the European Patent Office (EPO) has issued a communication under Rule 71(3), the validation process must be started by considering and meeting the following requirements.

Filing Deadline

Within 3 months as of the date of the publication of the grant decision at EPO. Typically, this process requires performing translations of the full patent specification, filing a patent application form, and paying official fees.



NO. However, it is only possible to file the translation later by paying a fine if a request for validation is filed in due time.

Translation Requirement

YES. Mandatory for the complete patent specification (i.e. description, claims, and figures).

Turkey is not a party to the London Agreement.

Representation by a Turkish Patent Attorney

YES. Mandatory for applicants without residence or principal place of business in Turkey.

Power of Attorney

Not required.

Provisional Protection For A Pending EP Application

YES. Through filing claims only in Turkish.



Once the validation of a granted European patent in Turkey is requested in time, such a request is to be examined within 1 month simply on the availability of formal requirements and checked if the European patent is filed in Turkish as it is, i.e. in respect of translation and entitlement thereof. The patent will have effect after the publication of the Turkish text in the patent bulletin within 1-2 months. A patent certificate is electronically issued well after the publication.

Official Fees

European Patents and Validating Them in Turkey


Turkey is the second most populous member state of EPC after Germany, with a population of 86.1 million as of 25 Jan. 2024, and an important hub at the crossroads of Europe, Asia, CIS countries and Africa with high potentials of manufacturing and logistics opportunities. It is therefore recommended to consider protecting inventions in Turkish territory.
