Australian patent law has a longstanding requirement for a complete specification to disclose the best method known to the applicant of performing the invention. In 2012, the Raising the Bar (RTB) reforms introduced an enablement requirement. At the time of the RTB changes, the best method requirement was retained in substantially the same form.
Few other jurisdictions still require a best method. Further consultation could assess the desirability of retaining or repealing the best method requirement.
