  • Author’s full name, address, profession and marital status;
  • Power of Attorney: in PDF format, electronically signed via Certification Authority (e.g.: FNMT-RCM in Spain);
  • Simple questionnaire containing software general information for filing purposes (e.g.: Field of Activity);

On average, it takes 10 days for Brazilian PTO grants and issues the Software Registration Certificate, since the registration is only based on a formalities check.
