Date Published

Examiners should base the PSO on the specification as filed and any amendments filed up to the date that the search and examination is carried out.  This includes voluntary amendments that have already been allowed and amendments filed in anticipation of examination.  Where an applicant files amendments after search and examination has commenced, these are not to be taken into consideration.  The basis of the PSO is stated in the report.
