Validating European patents in Cambodia
Validation of a European patent means the recognition, on request, of the effects of the European patent application and the European patent in Cambodia. We provide below some critical remarks on the matter for your reference.
The following requirements must be met to validate a European patent in Cambodia:
(i) Notarized Power of Attorney;
(ii) Granted European patents (notarization/certification is required for the copy of granted European patents);
(iii) Copy of the granted patent specification of the European patent in English (notarization/certification is not required for such copy).

– As mentioned above, pharmaceutical product patents are excluded from protection under Cambodian patent law, and therefore cannot be validated.
– Once the validation is successful, the patent owner will be granted an official patent certificate by MISTI.
