Patentability report

A patentability report is based on a previously conducted novelty search. A patent examiner specialised in a particular technical field assesses the patentability of your invention according to the criteria for patentability: novelty, inventiveness and industrial applicability.

Outcome of the search

The result of the search is a written opinion assessing the novelty, inventiveness and industrial applicability of the invention. The report is based on the cited documents.

The European patent legislation is used as the basis for our patentability evaluations. We use the problem and solution approach for determining inventiveness, whenever applicable. Read more about the method on the EPO website

How long does the search take?

Our delivery time is usually about 2 weeks from order. (Please observe that possible work queues within a particular technical field and the holiday season can prolong the estimated delivery time.)


The price for the search is € 950 + VAT 24%.

How to order

The patentability report is based on the cited documents found in a separate novelty search. You can choose to order the report at the same time as the novelty search or at a later date. We can also assess the patentability of your invention based on the cited documents provided by you.

The patentability report requires a detailed description of the invention, in which you give a rundown of the essential characteristics. The characteristics can also be shown in the independent claim. Describe also the background of the invention and the problems the invention solves. We cannot offer you a patentability report if it is unclear which of the characteristics in the invention are essential.
