However, when filing electronically, it is necessary to make a declaration about entitlement at filing. So that we can attend to electronic filing, when sending through instructions, please confirm the following:

  • that the applicants have entitlement from the inventors and, if the applicants are not the applicants of the priority applications, that entitlement has been obtained from the applicants of the priority applications.

If we do not receive confirmation of entitlement in sufficient time before the filing deadline, we will file the application in paper form.
