In response to the revision of examination practices for unity of invention, TIPO amended the Examination Guidelines on Unity of Invention which entered into force on January 1, 2019. By doing so, TIPO hopes to assist applicants in understanding more about the examination for unity of invention.
The key revisions of the amendment include the steps in determining unity of invention and clearly stipulated that, in principle, at least ONE independent claim (usually independent claim 1) as well as claims dependent on the independent claim shall be searched and examined if an application doesn’t meet the unity of invention requirement.
