Mr. Antonios Farassopoulos, Director, International Classifications and Standards Division, WIPO
The presentation presents a proposal to the IPC Committee of Experts to take a proactive approach and adopt a program of revision of the IPC for the next five years prioritizing those technical areas where there is a large amount of patent applications from emerging countries with significant growth rate, and where the number of subgroups in the IPC is not sufficient for an effective search.
