To apply for patent protection in Norway, you file a patent application to the Norwegian Industrial Property Office.
A Norwegian patent provides protection only in Norway. If you wish to apply for patent protection abroad, it is nevertheless an advantage if you begin the process by filing a national application, for example in Norway.
For Norwegian residents and companies operating in Norway: for reasons of security and traceability, we recommend that you file your patent application and related correspondence online via Altinn. You will receive a receipt immediately.
It is also possible to file your application using the form in PDF format, if you prefer.
