Convert a Patent Application

In many countries, for instance in Finland, a utility model application can be also filed based on a pending patent application, i.e. by converting a pending patent application into a utility model application. For example in a situation where the patent office is of the opinion that the invention described in the patent application is not sufficiently inventive, it is worthwhile to consider such conversion. In many countries, the conversion can be done in such a way that also the original patent application remains pending.

In Finland, such conversion can be made based both on a national Finnish patent application and such a European patent application in which Finland is one of the designated countries.
