Extensions of Time in Examination

Publication Date: 1998-07-15

The Office currently grants extensions of time of six months upon expiration of the time limit to respond to an examiner's report, if the request is justified.

Effective immediately, upon the expiration of twelve months from the deadline to respond to an examiner's report, the office will require significant substantive reason(s) which clearly justify a further extension of time and which set out in detail the reason why it is not yet possible to respond to an examiner's report.
