Rule 45bis.1(a) 45bis.1(e)(i)

8.005.   When should the request for a supplementary search be filed?  In many cases, requests for supplementary search will be filed once the applicant has received the main international search report.  In any event, the applicant must file a request for a supplementary international search prior to the expiration of 19 months from the priority date.  If the request is received after the expiration of this time limit, it will be considered not to have been submitted and there are no provisions to extend this time limit.
