The newly designed 12th edition of the Euro-PCT Guide is now available online

The newly designed 12th edition of the "Euro-PCT Guide: PCT procedure at the EPO" is now (17.0 7.2019) available online on the EPO website in HTML form and as pdf-file.

Several changes have been made to the latest edition of the Guide besides the yearly update of the information:
  • The annexes have been replaced by screenshots in the text of the Guide in order to better reflect the fact that most applicants file electronically and not on paper nowadays.
  • The numbering system has been modified in order to provide a better structure.
  • The layout has been revised.
The Euro-PCT Guide is based on the information available on 1 January 2019. Any changes to the PCT procedures before the EPO after that date are not reflected in the information provided here. Therefore, in using this Guide, applicants should always verify in particular whether any relevant changes to the procedures have entered into force since 1 January 2019.

The PDF file reflects the printed edition of the Euro-PCT Guide and is based on the information available on 1 January 2019.

The 12th printed edition of the Euro-PCT Guide (updated to 1 January 2019) will be available at the end of August.
