Welcome to the new version of the Patents Manual. Please note there are changes to the numbering and sequence of the chapters and pages in the manual. You are encouraged to take the time to explore and familiarise yourself with this new structure. Further Directions

Date Published

Where any direction has been given, the Commissioner retains the power to make further directions.  For instance, where an opposition is stayed due to a pending amendment, the Commissioner will monitor the progress of the amendment to ensure that the stay does not unnecessarily prolong the opposition.  Where appropriate, the stay can be lifted.
