PCT International Search and Preliminary Examination Guidelines
22.58 The International Preliminary Examining Authority must on the same day:
(i) transmit one copy of the international preliminary examination report (Form PCT/IPEA/409) and its annexes, if any, to the International Bureau under the cover of Form PCT/IPEA/415, and one copy of the report under cover of Form PCT/IPEA/416 to the applicant;
(ii) place a copy of the notification, report and amendment/rectifications in the examination file; and
(iii) where belated filing of Article 34 amendments means that such amendments have not been taken into account by the International Preliminary Examining Authority, notify the applicant of this fact, optionally using Form PCT/IPEA/432 (second check box action).
22.58A The International Preliminary Examining Authority also transmits a number of other documents in its file to the International Bureau (using Form PCT/IPEA/415). The documents to be transmitted are those referred to in Section 602bis(a). The Authority may decide to transmit any other document in its file to the International Bureau.
22.58B The International Bureau will communicate the above documents received from the International Preliminary Examining Authority to the elected Offices together with the international preliminary examination report, and will make them publicly available after the expiration of 30 months from the priority date.
