- · Generating a market study, that is, firstly sell the invention, and, through this study, arrive at aspects that may be important in preparing the protection strategies by means of the corresponding applicable legal concept (Patent, Utility Model, Industrial Design).
- · Delimitation of the scope of the invention, that is, to define concretely the technical problem that the invention solves and the manner in which said problem is solved, in a sufficiently clear manner.
- · Assessment of the NOVELTY, the INVENTIVE STEP and the INDUSTRIAL APPLICATION of the invention. This part is fundamental since, with the delimitation of the technical problem and the solution proposed by the invention, an investigation of the state of the technique must take place to obtain the documents most similar to the invention in order to assess the invention against what has been found and obtain a PATENTABILITY ANALYSIS. The patentability analysis will allow us to know the scope of the invention in order to write the claims, as well as to have an idea of the possible protection for the invention, as far as the IMPI, through the Examiner in charge of the patent application, is responsible for evaluating the NOVELTY, the INVENTIVE STEP and the INDUSTRIAL APPLICATION of the invention.
- · Drafting the patent application in a clear, concise way, including also the adequate presentation of the illustrations, so as to show the solution to the technical problem proposed by the invention, in a way that it supports the matter asserted in the claims.
- · Proper examination with close and clear communication with the IMPI Examiner in charge of the patent application, that is, the Examiner’s point of view and objections, which help ensure the patent application complies with an appropriate quality, in such a way that once the IMPI requirements have been met, the patent is granted.
i) There is a program that helps the inventor to get a patentability assessment of his invention and the patent drafting by free, it is called IMPI-FUMEC-NAFIN.
At IMPI there are around 125 patent examiners divided in four main areas such as mechanical, chemical, electrical and biotechnology, some of the patent examiners are hired only by a period of time and most of them are patent examiners with more than 5 years of experience in patent substantive examination who were hired by IMPI in a permanent way.
