PCT AG-IP 10.063 What special requirements apply during the international preliminary examination to nucleotide and/or amino acid sequence listings?

Rule 13ter.2

10.063.   What special requirements apply during the international preliminary examination to nucleotide and/or amino acid sequence listings?  Where the International Preliminary Examining Authority finds that an international application contains disclosure of a nucleotide and/or amino acid sequence and that listings of the sequences complying with the standard provided for in Annex C of the Administrative Instructions (see paragraph 5.099) have not already been furnished (as part of the international application or for the purposes of international preliminary examination, as the case may be), that Authority may invite the applicant to furnish sequence listings complying with this standard.  If the International Preliminary Examining Authority finds that the applicant has not already furnished (as part of the international application or for the purposes of international preliminary examination, as the case may be), sequence listings in electronic form complying with the standard provided for in Annex C of the Administrative Instructions, it may invite the applicant to furnish sequence listings to it in such a form.  The listings required by the International Preliminary Examining Authority are for the purposes of carrying out the international preliminary examination.  National law requirements, in relation to disclosure of inventions involving sequence listings, are a matter for the national phase of processing.
