How to Apply for a Patent?

To protect your rights as the owner of an invention, you need to file a patent application for the invention in each country, where protection is sought.

Always remember to KEEP THE INVENTION SECRET and do not market or sell the invention until a patent application has been filed at the South African Patent Office.

Obtaining a patent is a two-step process spaced 12 months apart.
