New Russian Patent Requirements to simplify the process of getting legal protection abroad

New Russian Patent Requirements have come into force as of April 29, 2023. Compared to the previous version of the Requirements, several amendments were introduced to improve Russian legislation and harmonize the provisions with the approaches applicable in foreign patent systems such as PCT, European and Eurasian patent conventions.

Firstly, this concerns the implemented two-step check of unity of invention (before and after the information search for an application is carried out) and new requirements for grouping of inventions. These amendments will considerably simplify the process of getting legal protection abroad.

Also, the list of documents related to an application was updated, and the list of situations for introducing amendments to the application materials was extended.
