Patent Official Action

Office action normally occurs when the Registrar is of the view that the applicant’s patent specification is within the claims of another prior patent application and/or not in line with the patentability requirements of the Patents Act. The Registrar will send a Substantive Examination Adverse Report containing information on the office action and provides opportunities for the applicant to respond.


The applicant is required to respond to the office actions within 2 months from the date of the notice of office action.
