Exercise of the profession as a patent attorney in the civil service Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

Patent attorneys,

  • who are used as judges or civil servants without being appointed for life,
  • who are called into the employment of a soldier on a temporary period, or
  • who are temporarily employed in the public sector,

may not pursue their profession as a patent attorney, unless they carry out the tasks assigned to them on a voluntary basis.


The competent authority may, on request, appoint a representative of the patent attorney or allow him to pursue the profession himself if it does not jeopardise the interests of the administration of justice.


No documentation is required.
