WIPO Digital Access Service for Priority Documents
It is recalled that, by using the WIPO Digital Access Service for Priority Documents (DAS), a PCT applicant can request the International Bureau (IB) to retrieve a copy of an earlier application from DAS for use as a priority document, instead of providing or arranging for the provision of a certified copy. Note that in order to be able to make use of the DAS service, it is the office with which the earlier application was filed that needs to be a DAS depositing Office, and not necessarily the receiving Office with which the international application is filed.
National Institute of Industrial Property (Brazil) and Danish Patent and Trademark Office
The National Institute of Industrial Property (Brazil), which has been a depositing Office since 1 December 2017, and the Danish Patent and Trademark Office, which has been a depositing Office since 1 November 2011, have notified the IB that, with effect from 1 April 2018 and 1 June 2018, respectively, they commenced operation as accessing Offices of DAS.
