The PCT Assembly held its 38th Session in Geneva, September 22 to 30, 2008, and adopted a number of amendments to the PCT regulations concerning the introduction of the new supplementary international searches. The Assembly also decided on a number of minor amendments to the current regulations.
Amendments concerning the Supplementary International Search (SIS) are mainly of a consequential nature in order to fill in the gaps of the previous proposed regulations introducing the SIS.
As previously announced the Nordic Patent Institute will offer SIS from January 1, 2009, along with the Swedish and Russian international search authorities.
