U.S. National Phase Requirements

  • The US must be designated in the PCT
  • US entry must occur within 30 months from the priority date
  • A copy of the International Application as filed
  • An English language translation of the International Application as filed
  • Amendments to the claims of the International Application
  • An English language translation of the amendments to the claims
  • An oath or declaration
  • An English language translation of the annexes of the International Preliminary Examination Report (IPER)

U.S. National Phase Fees

Our fees for entry into the US United States will vary depending on the International Application filed under the PCT. As a general guideline our fees for a US national phase from PCT that is truly ready to file with all accompanying parts is typically provided on a flat rate of $1,100 plus government fees. However, our fees are higher when amendments to the claims, such as those required to eliminate multiple dependency, are required. On average, our fees range from $ 1,100 - $ 1,800 plus government fees.
