EAPO Enables WIPO DAS for Eurasian Design Applicants

Feb 1 2022 - 14:35

On December 1, 2021, the Eurasian Patent Office enabled the World Intellectual Property Organization’s Digital Access Service (WIPO DAS) for Eurasian industrial design applicants.

The WIPO DAS is an electronic system allowing priority documents and similar documents to be securely exchanged between participating intellectual property offices (IPOs).

Now, when claiming priority in a Eurasian design application referring to an earlier application previously placed in the WIPO DAS digital library, applicants may submit the access code for this earlier application within WIPO DAS to EAPO instead of submitting a copy of the earlier application.

Applicants may deposit an earlier application in the WIPO DAS digital library through the WIPO International Bureau or another IPO which accepts applications for depositing in the WIPO DAS library, now including the EAPO.
