ANNEX I



STATUS REPORT ON CWS TASK No. 23



Document prepared by the European Patent Office (EPO)

TERMS OF REFERENCE


  1. This is an update to the status report provided in April 2012. The current report refers to the situation in early March 2014 and follows the lines expressed by the working title allocated to Task No. 23 at the 11th session of the SDWG in Geneva, October 26 to 30, 2009: “Monitor the inclusion, in databases, of information about entry, and, where applicable, the non-entry into the national (regional) phase of published PCT international applications”

PROGRESS MADE


  1. Efforts have continued in keeping up with the data delivered by the patent offices, in particular the co-operation with WIPO in this task is of great importance. Currently, out of 62 patent authorities contributing to the EPO's Legal Status Database, 42 are delivering information about the entry into the national (regional) phase. Taking into account, that several member states of the European and the Eurasian Patent Offices allow only regional designations, the number of countries covered is at least 52, however the timeliness and coverage give cause for concern.

PRESENT STATUS


  1. For the legal status database of the EPO direct input from national offices as well as the updates sent by WIPO are used. At the moment the country distribution according to the source of data is:

  • provided via WIPO and by the national office 10

  • provided via WIPO only 30

  • provided by national office only 2

Details can be gathered from the attached database contents table (see Appendix 1 and 2 to Annex I). An analysis of the Appendix data reveals that:



  • the EPO receives regular deliveries from 12 authorities;

  • 11 authorities have stopped delivering data directly to the EPO;

  • the EPO receives from WIPO regular deliveries of 10 national data;

  • 23 countries delivered by WIPO to the EPO have data at least 6 months old; and

  • for 9 authorities the deliveries from WIPO are outdated; in one case (CN) we know that the patent office considers this data confidential (thus made available only once national publication has occurred).




  1. The exchange of PCT entry data between WIPO and the EPO is done at a monthly schedule. In order to avoid duplications in the legal status database two measures have been taken:

  • the events reported via WIPO are stored with legal status codes different from those used for event received by national offices directly; and

  • de-duplication of events reported from both sources takes place at a monthly schedule; the codes for the input via WIPO take precedence.

However, certain countries provide data to WIPO under the condition that this data is not to be distributed further. WIPO has contacted all these countries to get permission to provide the data to the EPO. Currently the following countries fall into this category: CU, IN, KR, PH, SG, TR, VN. The data supply is mostly restricted to PCT entry information. It rarely covers follow-up events as national republication of the patent application or national grant. Currently WIPO investigates whether these events could be re-included or not.



  1. Concerning the non-entry information no further progress has been achieved. Currently only two Patent Offices supply this kind of information in a reliable way: the EPO and Japan, while a third Office, Germany, is planning to resume deliveries later this year. The non-entry information was available for additional countries in the past (for instance: Canada, the Republic of Korea, Russian Federation), however no recent data is available.

FUTURE PLANNING


  1. In spite of the efforts dedicated, coverage, timeliness and completeness of the PCT entry information have not improved significantly from the report two years ago. Regions of particular interest are Latin America and the Middle East. Concerning the completeness of information further efforts have to be made to get hold of such important events as refusals or withdrawals of national entries. This information is not yet supplied by a few PCT member states.

  2. Concerning the non-entry information further efforts are necessary to convince more countries to provide or to resume delivery of the non-entry data. In particular for countries with a high activity in PCT entries in comparison to the number of designations this information is crucial for the patent information community.
