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.

Korean Intellectual Property Office

The Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO), which has been a depositing Office and an accessing Office of DAS since 30 June 2009, has notified the IB that, with effect from 20 July 2018, it will extend the scope of the DAS digital library of KIPO to Industrial Designs.
