WIPO Launches Electronic PCT Processing

On July 6, 2005 , the World Intellectual Property Organization announced that PCT applications filed in the Republic of Korea and Finland will now be processed in a fully electronic manner. Electronic processing means that no paper file will be established at WIPO. Record copies and all subsequent documents for these applications will either be scanned on receipt (if received on paper) or loaded directly into an electronic dossier (E-dossier) if received electronically.

WIPO intends to gradually deploy full electronic processing of applications received from other PCT receiving offices in the coming months.
