The UPM Chair-ClarkeModet and the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office (Oficina Española de Patentes y Marcas – OEPM) present the report “First filing in the Spanish Patent Law”, a joint document which solves the most usual doubts about this procedure in the Spanish Patent Law, in force since April 1, 2017.


The objective of this collaboration is to clarify some of the most usual queries about Patent Law 24/2015: The obligation established on the inventions made in Spain of carrying out the first patent application in the OEPM.

For example:

  • If the applicant’s home, registered office or usual residence is in Spain, is it assumed that the invention was made on Spanish territory?
  • Does the residence of the inventors affect this assumption?
  • What are the consequences of failing to comply with this obligation?
  • What actions are recommended?

We solve these and other doubts in this complete report that you can download now:
