1.5.1 Introduction

Date Published

The Australian Patent Office has agreed to assist the Department of Intellectual Property of Thailand by searching a small number of applications made under the Thai Patents Act. Both Thai nationals and non-Thai nationals are required to pay the current search fee for this assistance. (Any fee payable is arranged by the PCT Unit on completion of the search.)

The Thai Office will usually provide, as minimum search documentation, an English language translation of the abstract and the broadest claim together with a copy of the drawing(s) where applicable of each application to be searched.
