Korean Intellectual Property Office: Transmittal of Notifications by E-mail to Certain Applicants

The Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO), in its capacity as International Searching Authority (ISA) and International Preliminary Examining Authority (IPEA), has notified the International Bureau that, with effect from 1 December 2014, it is prepared to send notifications by e-mail to applicants who have chosen it as ISA/IPEA but have filed the international application with a receiving Office other than KIPO. 

However, for a transitional period, until the end of the first half of 2015, it will continue to send notifications by mail, even if the applicant has checked “exclusively in electronic form (no paper notifications will be sent)” in the e-mail authorization box of the request form. Note that applicants will not be able to reply to such e-mails and ISA/KR and IPEA/KR does not accept documents sent by e-mail from applicants.
