British patents

Grant

Assuming that any objections during substantive examination are overcome, a patent is then granted. 

A certificate of grant is issued to the patentee, and the specification of the granted patent is published. 

Once the patent has been granted, the patentee can take legal action against any infringers. 

If there has been infringement between the date of publication and the date of grant, then in some circumstances damages can be recovered in respect of that infringement.
