FAQs
Q1. Term required for filing a patent application in Malasyia?
Patents with a filing date on or after 1 August 2001 have a maximum term of 20 years from the filing date. Patent applications filed before 1 August 2001, and pending on that date, will be granted 20 years from the date of filing or 15 years from the date of the grant, whichever is longer.
Q2. What is the Duration of Patents Malasyia ?
Validity term of the patent in Malaysia constitutes twenty years as of the filing date. Annual fees are due each year starting from the 2nd one and should be paid within twelve months from the date of grant.
Q3.What are the Filing requirements in Malasiya?
A patent application and its documents must be filed in English or Bahasa Malaysia at the filing date. However, in practice, nearly all applications are currently filed in English. Filing in a different language with late submission of English or Bahasa Malaysia translation is not possible. For obtainment of a filing date, a patent application in Malaysia must contain:
  • applicant’s and inventor’s details;
  • specification comprising a description, claims and any necessary drawings;
  • priority data (country and filing date of an earlier application), if any;
  • payment of the prescribed fee. 
A certified copy of the Priority Document may be requested by the Registar within the specified term (preferably within one month after filing during the formal examination).   Simply signed original of a Power of Attorney (POA) may be submitted during the formal examination that occurs approximately one months after filing the application. Legalization or notarization is not required.   Under the Malaysian IP law, there is no requirement or provision for filing an Assignment Deed, if the applicant is not the inventor. However, a statement explaining how the applicant derives its right to the patent from the inventor should be submitted to the Malaysian IPO during the formal examination (approximately one month after filing).
Q4. How to examine a Malasyian patent application?
Preliminary Examination Preliminary examination will be conducted if the application is accorded a filing date [S29 of Patents Act (PA)].
