The #IndianPatentOffice will start operating as an International Searching Authority (#ISA) and Inte!rnational Preliminary Examining Authority (#IPEA) with effect from 15 October 2013.

Status of ISA and IPEA would be beneficial for India in several ways. Being the only English speaking nation in the Asian region to be recognized as an ISA/IPEA would mean that several international applications received by #WIPO under the Patents Cooperation Treaty (#PCT) would be sent to the Indian Patent Offices for search and preliminary examination purposes. The quality of searches and examinations will also improve manifold.
