Outline

This one-stop website allows patent system users to download request/ petition forms to be used when they request an IP Office to conduct examination by referring to the results of search/examination already carried out by other IP Offices.
On this website, links will be displayed to the websites of IP Offices in the APEC region from which relevant request/petition forms can be downloaded. Forms not available online from IP Offices may be made downloadable directly from the website.
The website will contribute to facilitating user-driven patent examination cooperation without prejudice to the autonomy of each IP Office. This website may also be conducive to voluntary actions to improve the utility and user-friendliness of the request/petition forms.   (Further information)
