Proposed Changes to Regulations to Assist the Exchange of Patent Information

LAWFUEL – The Legal Newswire – IP Australia is consulting on proposed changes to the Patents Regulations 1991. These changes would extend the circumstances under which the Commissioner of Patents may make priority documents and other patent documents available to WIPO and other IP offices. The changes would also reduce the circumstances where applicants are required to routinely file copies of various patent documents with IP Australia when the documents are not immediately required by IP Australia or, if required, are available to it from an IP office.

As indicated in the consultation paper, submissions are due by COB, Wednesday 17 October 2007.
