Women asking a question
8 December 2016

We are seeking public comment on the new World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) standard for Sequence Listings.

Currently, patent specifications in Sequence Listings are made in ST.25, a text format which can be hard to validate. The revised standard, ST.26, will enhance the scope of current standards and better support digital transaction activities.


We invite the public to provide comments on the new standard by 27 December 2016.

Further information (including full details about how to provide comments) is available on our consultation page.
