  • Industrial applicability – the ability to reproduce products while retaining all important qualities, parameters and characteristics. The ability of technical implementation in practice is determined
  • Inventive level – the created product must be unique, i.e. it is needed not to have obvious features and characteristics for the professional community (those specialists who work in special area). 


To obtain a patent is possible for the entire unit, spare part, mechanism, element. The object may also be the material used for manufacturing products.
