The Canadian Intellectual Property Office has released a preview of the updated Manual of Patent Office Practice (MOPOP) that will come into force on .
We've updated several MOPOP chapters to align with the upcoming amendments to the Patent Rules, including guidance on:
- new mechanisms to streamline examination
- new safeguards for applicants and patentees
- other housekeeping and miscellaneous amendments
In addition to the preview, we've provided a track changes summary of the MOPOP changes.
If you have any questions, please consult our recently updated FAQs or contact Jeremy McLean, Program Manager, Examination Practice.
