Decommissioning the PCT-EASY functionality of PCT-SAFE

2 June 2015

The PCT-EASY functionality of PCT-SAFE will be decommissioned as of 1 July 2015. This was announced in WIPO’s  PCT Newsletter No. 04/2014. WIPO’s contemporary fully electronic filing system ePCT is the recommended alternative to PCT-EASY. Applicants are encouraged to move to ePCT-Filing at their earliest convenience.

From 1 July the New Zealand PCT Receiving Office (IPONZ) will no longer accept any correspondence in PCT-EASY format.

Further information on ePCT-Filing is available:
