Modifications of PCT - new rule 43bis

The search reports for international applications filed from 1 January 2004 onwards will be accompanied by a written opinion expressing the non-constraining views of the ISA as regards the patentability of the application. This written opinion is issued even if no international preliminary examination has been requested; it is not published with the international application and is not available to the public before expiration of a thirty months' term counted from the priority date.

If a request for international preliminary examination has been filed, this written opinion will serve as the basis for the IPEA's first opinion. When filing a request for examination, the applicant can simultaneously submit arguments in response to the ISA's written opinion and the IPEA can then issue new written opinions before releasing the final international preliminary examination report.
