Revised extension of term form

The Commissioner of Patents has approved a revised form for applications for extensions of term under section 70 of the Act and for the purpose of sub-section 71(1)(a).

Form p00052b has been amended in response to feedback from stakeholders and the needs of IP Australia in examining extension applications.

It is available at https://www.ipaustralia.gov.au/tools-resources/forms/application-extension-term-no-pre-tga-marketing-approval or through eServices.

Note that the information elements of the revised form are mandatory and that regulation 22.16 applies where an application is received that is not in accordance with the approved form.
