2.28.1 Introduction

Date Published

The transitional and savings provisions of the Patents Act 1990 (Raising the Bar Act) address the need to deal with patent applications filed, and patents granted, under the Patents Act 1990 (as in force immediately before 15 April 2013) and the Patents Act 1952.  These provisions are usually associated with any act which repeals or amends another, and codify principles of common law relating to such acts.
