6.005. What are the consequences of a decision by a receiving Office to restore the right of priority on a designated Office which has made a notification of incompatibility? Several designated Offices have notified the International Bureau under Rule 49ter.1(g) of the incompatibility of Rule 49ter.1(a) to (d) with the national law applied by that Office. As a result, these designated Offices will not be obliged to give effect to the decision by a receiving Office to restore the right of priority for the purposes of the procedure before that designated Office as outlined above. A list of Offices which have notified the International Bureau of incompatibility of their national law with Rule 49ter.1 can be found on WIPO’s website at www.wipo.int/pct/en/texts/reservations/res_incomp.html#R_49ter_1_g.
