USPTO announces further guidance on interactions with Rospatent

Questions from the public regarding dealings with the Federal Service for Intellectual Property of the Russian Federation, also known as Rospatent, should be directed to the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) via email at

Additionally, applicants filing international applications under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) are advised to exercise caution before selecting Rospatent as an International Searching Authority (ISA) or International Preliminary Examining Authority (IPEA). Doing so may prevent successful processing of international applications under the PCT, including the transmittal of required fees through financial institutions.

We will continue to provide updates on further developments.
