5.076.   How must the declarations be presented in the request?  Each declaration should be made on the appropriate sheet (Box No. VIII (i) to (v));  a "continuation sheet for declaration" (Continuation of Box No. VIII (i) to (v)) should be used in case any single declaration does not fit on the corresponding sheet.  The declarations must be worded using the standardized wording provided for in Sections 211 to 215.  Except in respect of the declaration of inventorship for the purposes of the designation of the United States of America (see paragraph 5.077), the applicant must choose those items and elements of the standardized wording that apply and place them in the appropriate order, taking into account the facts of the case, the chronology of events, etc.  Detailed guidance on making these declarations is contained in the Notes to the request form.  If no declaration is made, none of the declaration sheets should be included in the request.

Rule 4.17(iv)
Section 214(a)
and (b)

5.077.   The text of the declaration of inventorship for the purposes of the designation of the United States of America only is pre-printed in Box No. VIII(iv) of the request form since that text must be used as set out in Section 214, no parts may be omitted or presented in an order different from that used in the form.  When this declaration is furnished after the international filing date, the PCT application number must be added to the declaration in the space provided for this purpose.  In addition, when there are several inventors, all inventors must sign and date a complete declaration containing all inventors, even if they do not sign the same (copy of the) declaration, and the name, residence and address must be included for each inventor.
