There are several reasons why you might want a procedural representative to act on your behalf to file applications for Community Plant Variety Rights. The most common of these is the requirement of the CPVO for applications to be filed by a person or business that is domiciled within the 27 member states of the European Union. Alternatively, you may simply wish to engage an experienced practitioner so that you don’t have the hassle!

Plants For Europe Limited offers a complete procedural representative service for breeders and their agents or lawyers. We have considerable experience of successfully filing applications for Community PVR including some quite challenging applications for plants with variegated foliage. We can assist not only with the application, including submission of forms and supporting documentation, but also with arranging safe and timely delivery of plants for DUS examination and ensuring that appropriate CPVO fees are paid on time.

If you would like to know more, including details of our (very reasonable!) fees for this service, then please contact us.
