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 which needs to be a DAS depositing Office, and not necessarily the receiving Office with which the international application is filed.

National Intellectual Property Center of Georgia (SAKPATENTI)

The National Intellectual Property Center of Georgia (SAKPATENTI) has notified the International Bureau (IB) that, with effect from 1 April 2019, it will commence operation as both a depositing and an accessing Office of DAS.

Israel Patent Office
