PCT AG-IP 9.013 When does international publication take place?

Article 21(2)
Rule 48.2(h)
Section 113

9.013.   When does international publication take place?  International publication takes place promptly after the expiration of 18 months from the priority date.  However, when the applicant asks the International Bureau to publish his international application earlier, the International Bureau does so.  If the applicant asks for early publication and the international search report, or the declaration referred to in Article 17(2)(a), is not available for publication with the international application, a special fee, the amount of which is indicated in Annex B (IB), is payable to the International Bureau.  Normally, international publication takes place every Thursday except when the International Bureau is closed for business.  In such cases, the publication date will be announced in the PCT Newsletter.
