Procedure for registration of Patent in Nigeria

Registering patents in Nigeria is quite easy. Here is the procedure:

  • The first thing to do in order for you to get a patent registered is to conduct a search. This will show if the patent has been registered by another person or not.
  • A petition or request for a patent signed by the applicant or his agent and containing the applicant’s full name and address is to be made;
  • A specification, including a claim or claims in duplicate; plans and drawings, if any, in duplicate;
  • Where appropriate, a declaration signed by the true inventor requesting that he be mentioned as such in the patent and giving his name and address;
  • A signed power of Attorney or authorization of agent if the application is made by an agent;
  • An address for service in Nigeria if the applicant’s address is outside Nigeria; and payment of the prescribed fee must then be made.

Once granted, a patent is valid for 20 years.
