Q4. How to examine a Singapore patent application?
 Examination  For practical purposes, there are two types of examination available, namely local search and examination, and supplementary examination. Local search and examination is conducted by the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS). The examiner conducts a search in respect of each of the claims of the application to determine patentability. For Singapore national phase applications, local search and examination is to be requested within 36 months of the earliest priority date of the application. The grounds of examination will include an assessment of whether:
  • the claims are novel and inventive;
  • the claims are supported by the description;
  • the claimed invention is capable of industrial applicability (methods of medical treatment are not taken to be capable of industrial application);
  • the application includes added subject matter;
  • the invention as claimed is contrary to morality;
  • there is double patenting; and
  • each of the claims relates to a claim that has been searched.
Supplementary examination occurs where the applicant seeks to rely on a PCT application with a clear IPRP or the acceptance/allowance or grant of a corresponding application in Australia, Canada (for English applications), Japan, New Zealand, South Korea, the UK, the USA, and at the EPO (for English applications). Supplementary examination must be requested within 54 months of the priority date of the application. Under supplementary examination, the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS) conducts examination to ensure the application conforms to Singaporean patent practice. Supplementary examination considers whether:
  • the claims being examined are “related” to claims in the corresponding application on which supplementary examination is based;
  • the claims are supported by the description;
  • the invention as claimed is contrary to morality;
  • the invention as claimed relates to a method of medical treatment;
  • double patenting; and
  • the application includes added subject matter.
