11.079. What are the indications concerning biological material itself which must be given in the reference? The national laws of some of the national (or regional) Offices require that, besides indications concerning the deposit of biological material, an indication be given concerning the biological material itself, such as, for example, a short description of its characteristics, at least to the extent that this information is available to the applicant. These requirements must be met in the case of international applications for which any such Office is a designated Office, provided that the requirements have been notified to the International Bureau and published in the Official Notices (PCT Gazette). Annex L indicates, for each of the national (or regional) Offices, the requirements (if any) of this kind which have been so notified and published.
