Submitting International Search Report or Priority document
Q) Is it necessary to submit copy of International Search Report or Priority Document(s) ?
We do not have to file copy of International Search Report (ISR) or Priority Document(s) with the Japan Patent Office (JPO). The JPO acquires these documents through WIPO.
In rear cases, the JPO cannot get these document(s) via WIPO, when the JPO requires the Applicant to submit the necessary copy without time limit.
