- European patents (EP patents) validated in Sweden

- Granted EP patents where Sweden is designated, meaning the applicant has clearly requested that the patent be made valid in Sweden. (Searchable in the database for six months from EPO’s grant date.)

The patent database includes all the information and documents which are in PRV's archives, spanning from 1885 until the present day. For older patent material, the information may be limited.
