Changes to the PCT Publication Schedule

Publication of 6 May 2016

Due to the fact that Thursday, 5 May 2016, will be a non‑working day at WIPO, the PCT applications (as well as any Official Notices (PCT Gazette)) which would normally have been published on that day will be published on Friday, 6 May 2016. The date of completion of technical preparations for that publication will, however, remain unchanged, and any changes which should be taken into account for the purposes of international publication should be received by the International Bureau (IB) by midnight (Central European Time (CET)) on Tuesday, 19 April 2016.
