2nd tranche of Raising the Bar draft regulations
IP Australia today released the second tranche of exposure draft regulations implementing the Intellectual Property Laws Amendment (Raising the Bar) Act 2012.
This tranche deals with schedule 3 (reducing delays in resolving patent and trade mark applications) and schedule 6 (simplifying the IP system).
Comments still need to be submitted by 21 November 2012.
Go here, and scroll down (past the first tranche if you already have them).
Dr Summerfield prepared a marked up version of the regs as the first tranche would amend them and discussed the new search fee implications.
