Component 2. Development of Examination Guidelines


Development of Examination Guidelines


The introduction of new legislation sets new challenges to those applying the law. This is particularly so in the highly technical field of patents, a sphere which is regularly confronted with new areas of science that do not always fit into the mould set by legislation, and for which guiding documentation is important.

Under this component Rospatent and EPO experts aim to develop common documentation - Guidelines - giving guidance on the interpretation and application of legislation to patent examination. These guidelines will enhance internal harmonisation at Rospatent, and support Rospatent and its subordinate bodies in training and teaching aspects. The documentation will also be useful to patent practitioners, as well as generally serving to increase awareness and transparency of the examination procedure.
