- the key to a stronger International Patent Application.
The purpose of Supplementary International Search (SIS) is to give PCT applicants the option of requesting supplementary search from one of the participating International Search Authorities (ISA) in addition to the main PCT search, thereby reducing the likelihood of new prior art being found in the national phase.
PCT applicants may request a Supplementary International Search to be carried out by a different International Searching Authority than the Authority handling the PCT application. Nordic Patent Institute is one of the ISAs that offer Supplementary International Searches..
Nordic Patent Institute offers two types of Supplementary International Searches:
The Supplementary International Search is carried out on the PCT application as filed. The Supplementary Search Authority (SSA) begins the Supplementary Search at the latest by the expiration of 22 months from the priority date.
Nordic Patent Institute delivers the Supplementary Search Report within 2 months from having received the request from WIPO.
The Supplementary International Search request must be filed and fees paid to the International Bureau.
A request for a Supplementary International Search shall be filed at the International Bureau (WIPO). Click here for more information on how to file.
