A Swiss patent is not officially examined for novelty and inventive step. To be certain that your Swiss patent can be enforced, we recommend that you have a Prior Art Search carried out – if only to be sure that your invention is patentable. The Swiss Patent Application Search and the International-Type Search are both optional. The official search results are published with the application.
