The International Application Status Report (IASR) provides certain information and bibliographic data regarding an international application.  In particular, it may be used to determine the date of filing of a demand for international preliminary examination (Chapter II demand).

The IASR is available from Patentscope.  Where a demand has been filed, this is indicated under the “International Report on Patentability” heading as shown below.

International Report on Patentability (IPRP) Chapter II of the PCT:

Chapter II demand received: 10 July 2013 (10.07.2013)

Note: The IASR replaced the International Application Status Form (IASF) as of 27 April 2009.

Note: WIPO generates an IASR based on the information it receives and in the vast majority of cases this information is accurate. However, the accuracy of the information provided in an IASR could be affected by unusual events, for example where WIPO was not sent relevant information. In general, examiners should rely upon the information provided in an IASR, unless they have good reason not to.
