Estudio sobre la aplicación y promoción de la Norma ST.22 de la OMPI

2011 - Recopilación de resultados

En el presente cuestionario se abordan cuestiones relativas a la Norma ST.22 de la OMPI (Recomendación relativa a la elaboración de solicitudes de patente a los fines de facilitar el reconocimiento óptico de caracteres (ROC) y a las solicitudes de patentes presentadas en papel o por medios electrónicos (presentación–e) a condición de que el cuerpo del texto de la solicitud se presente en formato imagen (por ejemplo, imágenes PDF o TIFF).  Si su oficina no aplica procedimientos de ROC, responda exclusivamente a las preguntas que le incumban.

El Grupo de Trabajo sobre Normas y Documentación (SDWG) aprobó el 21 de noviembre de 2008 una versión revisada de la Norma ST.22 de la OMPI.  Dicha norma figura en: http://www.wipo.int/standards/es/pdf/03–22–01.pdf

Los resultados el estudio serán sometidos a examen del Comité de Normas Técnicas de la OMPI (CWS).

Téngase en cuenta que algunas preguntas puede ser que no aparezcan ya que su visualización depende de las respuestas a las preguntas precedentes. Esto puede causar algunos saltos en la numeración de las preguntas y las secciones visualizadas.

For Abstract text only, this is used for internal technical consideration and during our publication process.

As the JPO consigns the OCR process to the registered data processing organizations by statute, the JPO itself does not perform OCR process.

PPO uses optical character recognition with the purpose of preparing PDF files with text layer.

RU-001

About 2-3% of all applications (from second part of 2010 to present) are filed on-line and are not OCR-ed.

SE-001

In some parts.
- Regarding non-public patent applications only the abstracts are OCRed.
- For public patent applications the whole documents are OCRed (and they are full-text searchable at www.swedishpatentdatabase.se).

UA-001

Unconventional characters are inserted as graphic objects

US-001

All applications are OCR'ed for security checking, but the output is not saved for examination. The publication contractor employs OCR for publication.

Since 2011, the filing guidance Regulation "Verordnung des Präsidenten des Patentamtes über die Verfahren und die Publikationen im Bereich des Patentamtes (Patentamtsverordnung 2006 - PAV)" in the chapter "Gemeinsame Formvorschriften für die Beschreibung, die Patentansprüche (Ansprüche), die Zusammenfassung und die Zeichnungen" is based on recommendations of WIPO ST.22. This paragraph also refers to WIPO ST.22. http://www.patentamt.at/Media/PAV_2011.pdf.



http://www.patentamt.at/Media/PAV2011.pdf contains only the passages new/changed in comparision to the previous version of the regualtion.

AU-001

Please refer to question 6

BR-001

By June 2012, our office will start to accept electronic filings. The ones still presented on paper may be subjected to follow ST.22 recomendations, but this will be subjected to our government policies regarding the sustainable use of natural resources.

Regulation on the order of composing an application for patent issuance for an invention, its examination and decision delivery according to the examination results (Part 17) (http://www.wipo.int/wipolex/en/details.jsp?id=10079)

CN-001

The writing rules for application filing in SIPO's examination guidance has never been revised since its first edition in 1993, and embodies a favorable inheritance feature. To respect applicants’ writing habits, the adaptive revision to correspond with ST. 22 has yet not been made. However, the writing rules for application filing in SIPO's examination guidance partly conform to ST. 22, and the research of WIPO standards is also ongoing.

DK-001

Our guidelines adress some of the recommendations of the St. 22, but these recommendations go way back

GB-001

Current applicant guidance was considered to adequately reflect WIPO ST.22.

RU-001

Part of the Office Administrative Regulations containing requirements to the filing of applications has been published simultaneously with the adoption of the revised ST.22. That is why our Office filing guidance does not provide for all ST.22 requirements. Our Office is interested to implement almost all ST.22 requirements. However, the dead line for this implementation has not been established yet.

SA-001

The Regulation is an adaption of WIPO Standard ST.22

SK-001

The Office has issued and made available to the public via web page and its filing room a filing guidance having provisions laid down in the ST.22, but not referring to the standard as such neither containing complete and exactly the same provisions of the standard. Please refer to the Instruction of the Industrial Property Office of the Slovak Republic defining uniform layout of the patent application, Part: General Provisions Governing the Presentation of Application Documents (for more details see http://www.upv.sk/?instruction-of-the-industrial-property-office-of-the-slovak-republic-defining-uniform-layout-of-the-patent-application ). The instruction is currently being updated in order to, and among others, provide the applicants to take into account the recommendations of the WIPO Standard ST.22. Supposing the time this questionnaire being analyzed by the WIPO, the new updated instruction with the ST.22 reference should already be issued and available for general public.

The reason to change the regulation was that some applicants started to submit texts in font 7 or less. Our old regulation did not forsee such behaviour. With the new regulation we can ask the applicant to submit the application in a "readable" way.

AU-001

The Best Practice Guide referred to in Question 6 was only implemented on 1 July 2011, so too soon for us to comment on any improvement our Office has seen.

RU-001

We believe that these improvements have been caused rather by common applicant computerization than by implementation of new Office Administrative Regulations or ST.22, as the requirements for the paper quality and application layout have not been changed at least for the last ten years.

WO-001

No improvement checked for questions 8,9,10 because we have not measured this - a large proportion of the low confidence OCR documents we proof-read each week are those not confirming to ST.22 especially the 300 dpi, black and white A4 recommendations

Workflow concerning OCR of the patent documents:
1. Scan and OCR of the original document (used software: ABBYY Fine Reader 9.0 Professional Edition).
2. Preliminary verification of OCRed text by the PPO’s staff.
3. Creation of the document (used software: MS Word) based on OCRed text; bibliographic data; images and claims, using fixed template.
4. Saving in DOC format.
5. Comparison of the DOC document and paper document by PPO’s staff - final revision of the DOC document.
6. Transformation of the DOC document into searchable PDF using predefined scripts (used software: Microsoft Word, Adobe Acrobat Professional).
7. Publication on PPO’s website databases and on the Publication Server.

RU-001

OCR is carried out by software ABBYY Fine Reader 9.0. Before the OCR process, scanned document pages are divided for blocks: text, tables or images. OCR-ed text is corrected by operator. Pages are saved in MS Word as file of rtf format. Each file is named according to the type of application part – abstract, description, claims. Then the text is formatted in MS Word. Mathematic and physical formulas are put in the text as image objects by formula editor Microsoft Equation. Chemical formulas are put as objects by software ISIS Draw.

SE-001

New patent abstracts are OCR:ed each day, and are thereafter manual controlled. Public patent applications and patent documents are OCR:ed once a week automatically.
