Ungranted patents are simply patents that are not yet granted by the local or regional patent office, but their status is 'patent pending'. In many countries, there are no renewals before a patent is granted, however, the inventor can still restrict others from using, making, selling, and importing the invention in a respective region or country.

The time it takes for a patent to be granted after the application is submitted to a patent office can vary across jurisdictions. Usually, three to four years is typical in most jurisdictions, however, during this time the inventor can enjoy the patent rights.

You are able to add your ungranted patents to your patentrenewal platform, and you also have a filtering option on the platform that enables you to look at only your ungranted patents.

It is extremely important that if your ungranted patent was granted by the respective patent office you need to notify us about the grant.
