What is the deadline for filing the Russian translation? Can this deadline be extended?
In Russia: A Russian translation of an application shall be filed at the time of filing. In practice, if a translation is not filed within about one month from the date of filing, the patent office issues a formal office action requesting filing a translation. The term for providing a translation is three months from the issue date of the office action. This term can be extended for up to 10 months provided that extension fee is paid. Failure to provide translation within that term results is abandonment of the application.
In Eurasia: The Russian translation shall be filed within two months from the filing date. Extension of this term for additional two months is also possible subject to payment of the additional fee. Failure to provide translation within that term results is abandonment of the application.
