2.10.6 Acceptance

Date Published

Where an application is filed under sec 79B, there is no requirement that the parent application should be examined or accepted before the divisional application is examined or accepted. They can be accepted in any order.  However, examiners should bear in mind the provisions of sec 64 and the possible need for a bar-to-grant, not only in relation to the divisional under examination and the parent application, but also considering any other related divisional.
