Annex to priority document is revised

  • Date Posted:2016-10-14

Given that the priority document is the certification copy from which the technology disclosed in the patent application on the first filing date, it is justifiable to annex the description, abstract, claims and drawings with the exclusion of the subsequent amendment. Thus, priority document issued for applications that have been conversed or divided will similarly be annexed a copy of the original application. In case that the description, claims and drawings are submitted in foreign language on the date of filing the patent application and Chinese translation is later submitted within stipulated time period, the date on which the foreign language version is provided is deemed to be the first filing date and therefore, the priority document will be annexed a copy of foreign language version.
