We refer you to our e-services for submitting patent documents
In the first instance, we refer you to our e-services for submitting patent documents. However, it is also possible to mail your patent application to us. However, we advise you not to attach patent documents by e-mail or fax.
Before the submission
All our forms can be complete electronically. However, keep in mind that the application must be signed, which you can do with an advanced or qualified electronic signature or with paper and pen. The forms are in PDF format and always open in a new window. If you do not have access to a printer, you can order a copy of the form from our customer support.
If you mail your application to us, please use the address below:
102 42 Stockholm.
You can also hand it in at our reception desk at Valhallavägen 136 in Stockholm.
Keep in mind
An application must be signed in person by the applicant or by the applicant's legally authorised representative. For national applications, this means that a document submitted by e-mail must be confirmed by submitting a signed original document as well. The same applies if, in exceptional cases, you use fax. However, documents submitted by fax in PCT applications do not need to be confirmed in the original if they are sufficiently clear for publication.
A document that is subsequently confirmed by an original signature is deemed to have been received on the day the original (fax or e-mail) was received by PRV. The signed confirmation should be submitted to us as soon as possible, so as not to delay the processing.
In the case of letters, faxes and e-mails sent to us, the sender always bears the risk that the document does not reach PRV or is damaged in transit. Electronic documents are only considered received if we can open them with any known standard program. If we do not have a program to open the attached file, or if there is an error in the file, the document is not considered received. However, we will always let you know if we notice that something doesn't seem right. In general, we advise you not to send documents by e-mail or fax, especially in patent cases that have not yet become public, as unencrypted e-mail/fax is not considered a secure transmission method.
Within the framework of PRV's consultancy services, it is possible to communicate with us to a certain extent via encrypted e-mail.
