The purpose of this programme is to share search and examination results between the participating offices to allow applicants in participating countries to obtain corresponding patents faster and more efficiently. The programme will potentially reduce duplication on the search and examination work done, thereby saving time and effort. Additionally, search and examination work done on a corresponding application serves as a useful reference in producing quality reports.
As part of a regular review of the ASPEC programme, a revision was made and the ASPEC programme will now operate in the English language in all participating ASEAN IP Offices. The ASPEC Request Form has also been revised.
