Australian national phase entry deadlines and filing requirements

See also patent protection for Australians

Australia applies the 31 month PCT national phase entry deadline.

If the international application has been published and is in English, to enter the national phase in Australia we simply require your instructions. It is also desirable to file copies of any amendments made during the international phase.

If the international application has not been published, we will also require:

  • a copy of the application,
  • copies of any amendments or rectifications made during the international phase, and
  • the name(s) and address(es) of the applicant(s).

If the international application is not in English, a verified English translation of the application and any amendments filed during the international phase will also be required.

We do not require a Power of Attorney.
